Preparing Mind, Body and Soul for the Days of Awe

Counting the days until Rosh HaShanah?!  Are you ready for a new year?  Who do you want to be?  Join Rabbis Nadya and Victor Gross, Rabbi Ori Har DiGennaro and Rabbi Marc Soloway for Friday night dinner on September 7th  to help us begin to confront the awesome days ahead!  Each of them will share favorite teachings or spiritual practices connected to this season and we will then have an open discussion to help us navigate the inner and outer journeys of the Holidays.

Preparing Mind, Body and Soul for the Days of Awe is the next in the series of First Fridays at Congregation Bonai Shalom with Shabbat dinner and a speaker each month.

6:00 pm – Kabbalat Shabbat Services, 7:00 pm – Dinner, followed by the panel of rabbis

Reservations required for dinner and discussion: $15/adult, $12/child (under 12 years old), $50 max per family. Space is limited and will fill quickly, so RSVP now!  Please email

If you would like wine with your dinner, it is BYOB (Kosher only. Please label your wine with your name unless you plan to share.)

Rabbis Nadya and Victor Gross are co-rabbis of Pardes Levavot, a Jewish Renewal congregation in Boulder, as well as co-directors of Ruach Ha’aretz, ALEPH’s mobile retreat center. They are both faculty members of ALEPH, Jewish Renewal’s Rabbinical training program.

Rabbi Ori Har DiGennaro is director of the Center for Spiritual Friendship and Conscious Learning Community of Boulder, offering spiritual direction and mentoring in Sage-ing, as well as dance-based prayer.
