Aldan Solovy to Discuss Prayer as Spiritual Resistance
How can prayer be interpreted and used as a tool for spiritual resistance? Using Siddur and his book, “This Grateful Heart,” Aldan Solovy will explore five ways to engage in prayer as spiritual resistance: healing the soul, bridging divides, tikun olam, political opposition and political defiance. Alden Solovy spreads joy and excitement for prayer. A poet and liturgist, his work has been used by people of all faiths throughout the world. He’s written more than 600 pieces of new liturgy, offering a fresh new Jewish voice, challenging the boundaries between poetry, meditation, personal growth and prayer. This event will be held at Bonai Shalom on April 5th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm and is free and open to the community. RSVP here, please.
Art is always intertwined with the social, and political worlds of its creation. In this program, Professor Willa M. Johnson will tell the stories of political dissidents and Jewish men, women, and children who were interned across Europe, including in the pre-war German city of Düsseldorf and in three war-period French camps, using the work of the German Communist artist Karl Schwesig and a chorus of archival data.
