A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

This is the fictional story of Count Alexander Rostov, who in 1922 when he is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel.  Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors.  Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him a doorway into a much larger world of emotional discovery.

Lech L’Cha – Go To Yourself

Lech L’Cha – Go To Yourself

Full day retreat of chant, meditation and personal discovery

Start the Shabbat Morning Service chanting Psalms with Yaffah Schnitzer as we experience Shabbat Lech Lcha – “go to yourself.”  Deepen your soul in a service with Rabbi Sunny to lift the spirit, open the heart, and enlighten the mind. Lunch is followed by another session of chant where we can experience crossing over beyond our boundaries. Finish this full day retreat with Connie Reider and INscape, using photography as a meditation where one is totally immersed in the present.
