Start Thanksgiving Morning with Reb Zalman

So many of the prayers in our expansive Jewish liturgy are about gratitude, inviting us to cultivate a mood of thankfulness. Clearly, Thanksgiving is connected to this theme and yet this very American holiday too often becomes about something else.

This year, Reb Zalman has agreed to lead our Thursday morning shacharit service in honor of the Holiday on Thanksgiving morning at 8:00 am at Bonai Shalom (1527 Cherryvale, Boulder), offering us a wonderful opportunity to begin the day with intention and spirituality.

We hope you will join us for this traditional morning service, with some seasonal and creative additions. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
