Step into Your Island in Time on Shabbat

Koreh: Writers in the Sanctuary returns for its 5780 season this November. The kickoff program is an open mic on Shabbat, Friday, November 1.

The evening begins at 7:30 p.m. with refreshments and conversation in the social hall (enter the building from the front door under the stairs). Later, in the sanctuary, open mic readers will have 5-7 minutes — storytelling and poetry welcome. Spaces are limited – sign up in advance.

For those who will be spectators and not readers, here’s a taste of what to expect from the poets, storytellers, and writers:

We invite stories about what it means to rest and re-ensoul. What is repose for you? How do you create sacred time, or what makes time stop for you? What are your stories that replenish? Tell us a story about your longing for rest. Read us a poem about your touchstone for restoration. What are the sabbaths of our lives? And, in a world that can push us towards burn-out, how do we know how to stop?

Everyone will be treated to musical entertainment from Noah Gotfrit and Wendy Rubin. Noah has performed for Shabbat Soul programs and Wendy is a Chanting & Chocolate band member.

No cost to attend and all are welcome. See you on Shabbat!
