Dance T’fila – Dancing Into The New Year

The Center for Spiritual Friendship and Pardes Levavot invite you to an Intention Dance for Rosh HaShana – the Jewish New Year.

Dance T’fila
Dancing Into The New Year
setting our intentions,
bringing the fullness of Who We Are to the holidays
with a whole body prayer.

If the Jewish tradition had preserved sacred dance as a form of worship, what would it look like? Imagine dancing through the Four Worlds! Listening to your body, allowing expression of your deepest yearning, tuning in to the hum of creation, and diving into your soul and back daring to participate in God’s timelessness.

You need only a willingness to move in new ways, and to pray with your body. No background in dance is required, and everyone can participate according to their ability.

Wear comfortable clothes and bring water and a journal.

Who – This journey is open to those seeking to prepare themselves for the High HolyDays in new and conscious ways to fully embody heaven and earth.

What – Together, and with intention, we will plant the seeds in the soil of our soul to bring about change in our lives, our community and the world.

When – Sunday, September 25th, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. It is important to be present for the beginning and remain throughout. Doors will be closed when the program begin.

Where – Frequent Flyers’ Aerial Dance Studio 3022 E. Sterling Circle, Suite 150, Boulder, CO 80301*

Tishrei Tidbits – Yom Kippur

How do I know Judaism is still alive and well? More people go to synagogue for Kol NIdrei than any other time of the year- and there’s no food served for at least twenty four hours!

  1. Holy Sister Nadya, blessings to you for spurring the Jews to dance. You write: "If the Jewish tradition had preserved sacred dance as a form of worship, what would it look like?" It has preserved sacred dance– in the hasidic world. We know what it looks like too. Google hasidic dance "video" and watch. Our task is to get the rest of the Jews to dance in synagogue and elsewhere.. I've been collecting hundreds of hasidic teachings about dance, along with some Sufi and Bhakti (devotional) yoga teachings. I don't want to work up the material; I'll just put it out as an anthology. I plan on gathering maybe 12 to 20 teachers of Jewish sacred dance or just committed dancers to co-author and fund the book's production. They will contribute articles, comment on the teachings etc. I have a group of about a dozen people, most of whom you know, who have expressed great interest in what I've collected and who I'll offer this opportunity. I'm sure you'll want to join. The group will get access to my materials before the book comes out too. Anyone can contact me about it. Yitzhak Buxbaum
