A Special Class for Temple Shalom Members
The traditional Medical Model focuses on Illness: diagnosing, fighting, controlling, attempts at eradicating; and, diminishing symptoms. It compartmentalizes living beings as though they are a collection of parts.
A Holistic Approach focuses on Health: how to create it, how to maintain it, how to regain it. Furthermore, a Holistic Approach has the basic premise that Mind, Body, Spirit, Emotions, relationships and unhealed past traumas influence the relative states of health wellbeing and illness dis ease in all beings.
Come to a free introductory presentation Wednesday, May 3 at Temple Shalom from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
This will be followed by a more detailed 4 week class on Wednesdays May 17, 24, 31 and June 7, 6:30 TO 8:30 PM, (Sliding scale fees, $70 to $100 per person for series, according to income and No. of dependents. 20% of proceeds donated back to Temple Shalom.)
To register or for any questions, please contact Lilian Bern, MA @ Lilianbern@aol.com
May 5 Rabbi-Led Service
“What? Me Holy?”
Please join me for a worship service on Friday, May 5, at 6:30.
A Torah service will be included. The reading for that Shabbat is a double parshah: Aḥarei Mot and Kedoshim. Kedoshim is the central parshah of the central book of the Torah, not a coincidental fact. It begins: Adonai spoke unto Moses, saying: Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel and say unto them: You shall be holy; for I Adonai your God am holy. What does this mean? Do we all have to be saints? Angels? Rebbes? Can a person, Jewish or not, lead an ordinary life and be holy, too?
We’ll be considering these things on May 5.
Tuesday, May 2, 7:00 p.m.
