Join us on the fourth Friday of each month for a prayerful experience that is both inspired by - and led by - members of our community. If you have an offering that you would like to share at a service, please contact Kelsey Russom. Past offerings have included song, mediation, poetry, teachings - but are not limited to these - feel free to offer your own connection to prayer.
Used colloquially to mean sacrifice, Korban is a Hebrew word: An offering that is brought for the purpose of drawing nearer to others and to G-d.
Meeting in Makom Sholom (the meditative sanctuary at Congregation Beth Sholom, built by Rabbi Alan Lew), each Korban Shabbat is determined by the offerings brought by those present, including but not limited to music, readings, movement and meditations. Through our offerings and willing engagement, we create a holy community, one in which G-d's presence is brought close. Korban Shabbat is an evening of sharing your own personal connections and avenues to prayer with members of this community.
NOTE: We will meet again on Friday evening, January 25. (Note: We will not be holding the Korban service in December...See you in January!)
