Shofar, So Good: Getting the Most Out of Rosh Hashanah @ 1st Floor of Hillel
Sep 27 @ 7:00 pm – 7:00 pm

At the climax of the Rosh Hashannah services, we declare: “Repentance (teshuva), prayer (tefilah), and righteous giving (tzedakah) transcend the severity of the decree.” In these weeks leading up to Rosh Hashannah, let’s take the opportunity to explore these three major themes of the high holidays together. In these informal sessions, we’ll unpack one of these concepts in Jewish thought and review a piece of the Rosh Hashannah prayers that relates to it. The sessions will each stand on their own, so come to as many as you can.

Taught by Benjamin Goldberg, JTS intern at Rutgers Hillel
Open to all!

Here at Meditation Station our goal is to become aware of, experience, and IMPROVE our True Self.

What is this “True Self” we speak of?

Our True Self is the Source and Spark of life that connects us all. It is the “Power Source” of life.

Just like electricity is the power source of a light bulb, our Power Source is what allows us to live.

As we come in touch with our Power Source, our eyes will open, and we will see.
