Rabbi Ted's Shabbat gatherings welcome all
who wish to deepen their spiritual path.
Join him and musicians Jenny & Jack Heutmaker and Paul Bruno on December 11, 7:30 pm, at Interfaith Community Sanctuary, 1763 NW 62nd Street in Ballard.
Rabbi Ted pioneered the development of meditative Shabbat worship almost 40 years ago, at Makom Ohr Shalom in Los Angeles. That form deepened over the years he led Shabbat gatherings at Bet Alef Meditative Synagogue in Seattle. After taking a sabbatical from leading Shabbat meditations when he left Bet Alef at the end of 2009, Rabbi Ted is once again stepping into celebrating Shabbat in his distinctive way on the second Friday of each month.
Perhaps a night that invites us to disguise ourselves offers a brief respite from our usual mask—for isn’t our personality a complex mask we developed to establish and support our separate identity in the world?
