  • Opening to the Love that Heals: A Love Shabbat
    Friday, February 12, 7:30 pm, Interfaith Community Sanctuary

    When the rabbinic sages were asked to identify the most important teachings of Torah, the passages they chose were the same as the ones given by Jesus as the Great Commandments:
    Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength. (Deut. 6:5) Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. (Lev. 19:18) On these two commandments hang all the Torah and the prophets. (Matthew 22:37)
    The focus of our next Shabbat gathering will be on these most important teachings. How can we better open our hearts to love of self, love of other, and love of the Divine Presence?
    With musicians Jenny & Jack Heutmaker. Made possible by your free will contributions. Interfaith Community Sanctuary is located at 1763 NW 62nd Street in Ballard.
