Holy Wanderers - a virtual Passover Retreat
Sunday, March 28 at 4pm - Friday, April 2 at 8pm
Beth Chaim is proud to partner with Noah Aaronson for a week of Passover learning. Starting with a musical introduction to the second Seder and ending with a spirited Shabbat service and with daily classes in between. His week will provide nourishment for the soul.
Combining music, mindfulness, movement, meditation, and text study, Noah Aronson will lead five unique weekday workshops exploring various character traits of Moses, Miriam, Aaron, and Batya. Through this lens, we will explore the traits of courage, vulnerability, awareness, humility, and faith and practice ways that these traits can guide us through the wilderness of our own selves.
