7:30 sharing and discussion

Shalom Chevre,
We are reviving a fundamental Minyan tradition: a MONTHLY MINYAN SHARING!
We have just emerged from the High Holy Days, a period of profound spiritual intimacy.
A pillar of community is better knowing one another; weaving a web of sharing.
The Minyan Sharing is just such an opportunity.
Each of us will have the opportunity to share something which we feel important for the community to know about us.
Bring your joys, your concerns, your needs, your abundance, your stories, and let's enrich ourselves and community together.
Marty Potrop will facilitate.
Location: Abigail & Shoshana's, 2225 Woolsey, Berkeley 94705, down the driveway thru the gate.
