    Date: Monday, April 22, 2013
    Time: Dinner 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm  Program 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

    Come hear several stories of how Jews found yoga and found a path connecting this ancient physical practice to their Jewish soul, identity, and practice.  Q & A and yoga demo to follow.  Moderated by Rabbi Anne Brener with participation of Rabbi Avivah Erlick, Michelle Azar,  Zack Lodmer and Ida Unger.

    Yoga for Jews: Is it kosher?  Is it holy?  Is it confusing?

    What are some of the thoughts and challenges with adopting yoga as part of a Jewish spiritual path? Do we chant in Hindu?  Use the Sankrit language?  Practice with idols in the room?  Let’s make some peace with the ways these ancient paths enhance and deepen each other, while keeping it kosher.

    Optional Dinner at 6pm – Order your dinner in advance from Got Kosher and it will be waiting for you at Temple Emanuel. E-mail DeliaDuPlessis@sbcglobal.net for more information.
