Finding Meaning in Shabbat

A Panel Discussion

Dasee Berkowitz, David Ingber, Marc Katz, Malya Kurzweil Levin, DovBer Pinson, Karina Zilberman

Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality, Shabbat

As Shabbat begins, so does an exploration of its significance. The diverse observances throughout the Jewish community are a reflection of individuals’ varied meanings of Shabbat. How, as a community, do we respect each others’ Shabbat observances while at the same time exploring a renewed, deeper meaning in our own practices? To explore this and other questions, the panelists will share the rituals and ideas that are most important to them in their observance of Shabbat.
