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.

Great Names – Mark Hetfield

An expert in refugee and immigration law, policy, and programs, Mark Hetfield has led the HIAS organization’s (founded in 1881) transformation from one focused on Jewish immigrants to a global agency assisting refugees of all faiths and ethnicities. HIAS is currently a major implementing partner of the UN Refugee Agency and the Department of State.  Mark formerly served as senior advisor at the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, where he directed a congressionally-authorized study on the treatment of asylum seekers (the most comprehensive study on expedited removal to date). He also adjudicated appeals at the Immigration and Naturalization Service and was posted to the US Embassy in Haiti, during a time in which the country was under the control of the military junta.
