1st Session Online Chug Electives and their Descriptions:
A. BLOOMING TORAH YOGA (Hybrid Offering) (40-Minute Chug)
Enjoy a Moving Meditation with a beautiful yoga practice to prepare us for the end of Spring (seeds planted) and the beginning of Summer (a time for blooming). Wear comfortable clothes and bring a towel or a mat. Led by Rabbi Susie Heneson Moskowitz, a 500-Hour Certified Yoga Instructor in the lineage of Krishnamacharya.
B. MEDITATION (90-Minute Chug)
Meditation Through a Jewish Lens with Rabbi Anne Brener, LCSW. Hiding in plain sight in the liturgy are guides to mindful practice. We will explore these and find ways to integrate them as natural parts of our personal and professional lives.
C. POETRY AS SPIRITUAL PRACTICE: Part One (40-Minute Chug)
Led by Rabbi Pamela Wax: Tish Harrison Warren wrote "Why Poetry is So Crucial Right Now" in a New York Times op-ed in 2021. In this workshop, we will discuss why this is so, how poetry is a spiritual practice, and discuss a few model poems. Not only for poetry lovers, this workshop will help de-mystify poetry for those who are new to or intimidated by poetry. Take-home writing prompts will be offered.
Rabbi Wax is also offering an optional second part to this chug. You may register for “Poetry” for Part One only, or for both Part One and Part Two. You may not register only for Session Two.
D. RUTH AND NAOMI (40-Minute Chug)
Rabbi Becky Jaye will teach, “Ruth and Naomi: Bridging the Feminist Divide?” Join this class to learn about how we may interpret the bond between Ruth and Naomi through a contemporary lens of feminism, race, and identity. What lessons can we learn when explore their relational dynamic -- in both its ups and downs -- to the journey and rise of feminism in the United States, as it evolved to represent a multi-ethnic, multi-religious, and multi-racial community?
