NEW SPIRITUALITY PROGRAMS AT THE UJC


CHAVRAYA: THE UJC SPIRITUALITY CIRCLE



An association dedicated to deepening the life of the spirit.

Participants in this chavraya, this gathering of spiritual colleagues, will provide support and guidance for one another in the critical work of caring for the soul. Our aim will be to create a quiet space in this noisy world for prayer, contemplation, and the cultivation of essential middot. Our work will be informed by the program of spiritual development outlined by Rabbi Kalonymus Kalman Shapira in his book B’nai Machshava Tova, available in a translation entitled Conscious Community. (See details below)

This is a group for those willing to make an extra investment in their spiritual life and who are looking for the companionship of fellow seekers.

Stay tuned for the details of our next meeting.

If you are interested in Chavraya, please register with the UJC office.

You will also need to obtain a copy of Conscious Community (Kalonymus Kalman Shapira, trans. Andrea Cohen-Kiener, Kindle or print edition). Or try this downloadable translation by Yaacov Dovid Shulman.
