Tu B’Shvat Celebration with Potluck @ Narberth Library Girl Scout Room
Jan 19 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us on the fifteenth day of the Hebrew month of Shvat. Together we will learn about this special holiday that celebrates the “birthday” of the trees and teaches us to care for the natural world. We’ll enjoy a Tu B’Shvat pot luck feast of foods that help us remember all the ways we are nourished by the earth, followed by an ICE CREAM Tu B’shvat seder! Adult study for those who would like to learn more about Judaism and the environment, and the mystical aspects of this holiday!

JRA Food Packing & Delivery @ JRA Warehouse
Jan 20 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join us at the Jewish Relief Agency’s warehouse to pack food boxes and deliver them to needy families. This is a fun activity appropriate for the entire family!

Go to the JRA website to see your options as to times you wish to help on each delivery date: while you can volunteer in whatever way works best for you, we generally plan for Havurah members to meet by where bagels are served so we can have a bite and then get in line together to pack boxes before we head out for deliveries. Please RSVP for a delivery route through the JRA website ahead of time!

Jewish Spirituality Shabbat @ Boro Hall, Narberth
Jan 26 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Come and experience a taste of the body and soul nourishment that Shabbat is meant to bring! We are joining together with Or Zarua, another Havurah in our area led by Rabbi Shelly Barnathan.

The morning will begin with Qigong, framed in Jewish wisdom, and led by Beth Berman, a member of Or Zarua. Our service will also include Jewish mindfulness meditation and chant, as well as brief Torah teachings.

This experience is for everyone with an open mind and heart! No Qigong or meditation experience is needed. See this as a morning of self care amidst these troubling times! Together we will create a sacred space to nourish our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls!

JOIN US!!
