First Fridays: Recipes for a Sacred Life

Rivvy 71on benchRivvy Neshama will be reading stories from her award-winning book, “RECIPES FOR A SACRED LIFE: True Stories and a Few Miracles,” at Congregation Bonai Shalom on December 5th.

From dancing to forgiving, from walking at dawn to sharing dinner with a stranger,  Neshama invites us to find the sacred — in unlikely places and everyday life.  Rich in heart and humor and steeped in ancient wisdom, these short, true tales reveal how ordinary encounters — with friends, nature, family, and strangers — can suddenly connect us with the sacred, adding love, joy, and purpose to our lives. This book is for anyone seeking inspiration … and for everyone who enjoys a good story!

Rivvy’s delightful stories open the heart and raise us to a higher level of compassion and generosity. Read them, one at a time, and then daydream on them. And you will take on a glow of joy and feel more secure in God’s world.”– Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi z”l 

The book sells for $16.95, but Rivvy will be offering it to Bonai at a special rate of $15.00.
This book has been reviewed and recommended in Jewish newspapers as a wonderful gift book to give friends and family on Hanukkah. Please let us know if you would like to pre-order the book for pickup on the event date.
First Fridays begin at 6:00 pm with services, 7:00 pm dinner, and 8:00 pm discussion. Kosher wine is BYOB. $18/adult, $15/child, $54/family. RSVP at http://bonaishalom.org/events/first-friday-recipes-for-a-sacred-life-true-stories-and-a-few-miracles/ or call the office at 303-442-6605.

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
