What is this night all about? 

Introduction from Stefanie Adler

This Women of Wisdom evening will explore the symbolism and meaning of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, the connection of a red string to this time of year, and the Jewish tradition of knot tying, all while making toasts and giving blessings to others for the Jewish New Year.  

 

The Kavannah, or intention for this WoW evening is “knots of intention”. During this evening, we will bead bracelets using semi-precious stones and beans, eat Rosh Hashannah Simanim (traditional Rosh Hashannah foods--think Apples and Honey). And explore newfound meanings behind the High Holiday services.

 

In advance, participants will be asked to prepare a blessing or l’chayim for the group based upon a new year’s blessing that they themselves would like to receive. The Jewish idea is that those that bless others with their own prayers and aspirations will receive them first for themselves. 

 

We will wine, dine, bead, and share wisdom which will bring inspiration heading into this new year.

 

L'chayim,

 

Bradley Caro Cook, Ed.D.
