Shabbat Shira – Poems of Our Community

Shabbat Shira is coming up (Jan. 29-30), and we are creating a booklet of your favorite poems! Shabbat Shira (Shabbat of Song/Poetry) is the week we read the portion when the Israelites cross the Red Sea and burst into spontaneous joyful song.

 Please send your favorite poem(s) that makes you think or smile to communications@neharshalom.org by Wednesday, January 27th. Any topic is welcome! We will compile the poetry and send out a booklet before Shabbat.

 


Tu Bishvat Botanical Printmaking

Sunday, January 24th and 31st from 12:00 p.m. – 1:30pm
Join us in celebrating Tu Bishvat with botanical printmaking! Botanical printing, often called ‘ecoprinting’, is the process of dyeing paper or fabric with leaves, roots, barks, flowers, and other found botanical materials. This two session workshop facilitated by Judaica artist Noam Mason will guide you through building a dyepot and creating ecoprinted papers to use in illustrating a section of Perek Shirah, a collection of Tanakh verses attributed to the embodied voices of the natural world. Materials will be mailed to your home. Cost of participation is $15. Children and families warmly welcomed.

Sign up by January 1st to ensure the materials reach you in time!
