Pardes Levavot Honors Zayin Adar With Special Shabbat Guest, Dr. Jason Mann

Friday, March 3 and Saturday, March 4
Honoring ‘Zayin Adar’ (7th of Adar) – the yahrzeit of Moshe Rabbeinu (Moses, our teacher) – it is customary to honor the practices of caring for those who are ill, accompanying the dying process and comforting mourners – traditionally the work of the Chevreh Kaddisha.
 
We will be welcoming a special guest, Dr. Jason Mann – who will teach about the healing power of relationship and the role of spirituality in health and how we support others in distress
 
Friday evening service at 7:00 pm
Shabbat morning, 10:00 am followed by a pot luck lunch and teaching

After completing 30 years of Medical Practice as a Hematologist and Oncologist, Dr. Jason Mann began an exploration of the field of Spiritual Care.  This led him to train and work as a Hospital Chaplain and enroll in the ALEPH Rabbinic Ordination Program. 

He has used his unique life experiences as both a spiritual care provider and physician to teach physicians, chaplains, and  patient advocacy groups about the healing power of relationships and the relationship between spirituality and medicine. 

Dr Mann has recently been ordained as a Spiritual Director and will soon complete his studies in the ALEPH Rabbinic Ordination Program. 

He shares his life with his wife, Bhavani, his two children and his three beautiful grandchildren, Nina, Teo and Misha.
