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.
