It takes three things to attain a sense of significant being: God, a soul, and a moment. And the three are always here.” – Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
That said, sometimes we need a nudge, even a serious push, to wake us up to that sense of significance. We need to create holy space. That’s what Shabbat is all about: creating the space in our busy lives to capture and celebrate their significance, whether the place we’re at is a moment of gratitude and joy, or a place of loneliness and loss. Prayer clears space in our hearts to connect our souls to the moment, and to the greater Presence. We do that in Shabbat services at Mishkan with music, with meditation, with the traditional words of Jewish prayer, and through giving ourselves space to create our own words.
Mishkan Shabbat services are held on the 1st Saturday morning of the month, the 2nd Friday night of the month & the last Friday night of the month. The only thing needed is that your heart be in it. You in?
