IN-PERSON OUSD/BUSD Focus: Listening Circles after 10/7: An Omer Practice

May 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for seven Listening Circles in the weeks after Passover for each week of the Omer, Kehilla Spiritual Leaders are holding spaces for people to process what is happening in Israel/Palestine. Some are listening circles are in person and some are online. 

For each week of the Omer, Kehilla Spiritual Leaders are holding spaces for people to process what is happening in Israel/Palestine, grief over all of the violence and suffering, what it’s like to be Jewish now, fears about safety for Jewish Israelis and Palestinians, and for Jews in the US, how to support our kids, etc., and to feel more connected to Jewish community as conditions shift.

This third Listening Circle will include special small group breakouts for people who are connected to Oakland and Berkeley Unified School Districts. Others are also welcome to attend. It will be led by Howard Hamburger, Avi Rose and Rabbi Dev Noily. We will be guided by the Divine quality of tiferet / heart, harmony, balance, beauty.
