Shabbat Evening Service

November 18, 2022    
8:00 pm - 9:15 pm

Join us via Zoom

Meeting ID: 816 1083 0118

Spend a weekend with the topic of life… and death.

On the Shabbat of 11/18 we learn from Parashat Chaye Sarah/ “the life of Sarah.” Ironically, the reference to Sarah’s life actually describes her age at her death. For a number of reasons, many of us who are in good “health” may feel a spectre of death and violence that can lead to fear, suffering, and death looming near.

Join Rabbi Daria on Friday and Saturday at Oseh, and on Sunday as part of the Howard County Day of Learning to further explore in a variety of ways the topic of “how are we living now?”

Fri night (services &) drash: Now more than ever we are called to ask ourselves, “What am I doing with my life?”

Fri night Oneg Group: Come together with others in our community to share what is stirring for you in light of this week’s drash.

Saturday morning (chanting &) Torah study- What does chanting in Hebrew have to do with life, death, and our matriarch, Sarah? Join Rabbi Daria for any or all of the following: 9:15-9:45 for meditation, Chanting: 10-11, Conversation and Study: 11-noon. (Hybrid)

Sunday afternoon- Ethical Wills: What legacy can you gift to your loved ones that they can get from nowhere else and nothing else? Your reflections about life, and specifically what you have learned and integrated. We often rush through our days and weeks, and have surface level conversations with those we are closest with you. Join Rabbi Daria to have space to explore what is most important to you, and why? We will create space to gather in- and put actual pen to paper! – some of the wisdom we each have and want to share with others.

Register here by Nov. 17 for the Howard County Day of Learning with Rabbi Daria and many others!
