Celebrate Shabbat with a walk through woods and fields and an hour or two of conversation, prayer, meditation, reflection, and Torah discussion. See below for upcoming dates.



Sukkot Gathering, Saturday September 30, 11:30 AM

Join Rabbi Katy and Gabi in their sukkah for Shabbat / Sukkot readings, reflections, guided meditation, a chance to shake the lulav and etrog and to wander in their garden, and lunch in the sukkah. Bring a dish to share for a potluck vegetarian lunch. RSVP here.

Sukkot Family Celebration, Sunday, October 1, 10 AM, Open Spirit, Framingham

Help build and decorate the sukkah, shake the lulav and etrog, create your own place-based alternative lulav and etrog, and eat in the sukkah. Bring reusable plates and cutlery and water bottles for your family, a dish to share for a potluck vegetarian lunch, and a chair or blanket to sit on. And if you've got some plants that can be trimmed, we can use them for the schach to cover the roof. RSVP here.

Sukkot Drop-In Gathering, Wednesday, October 4, 12-2 PM

Open Spirit, Framingham

Take time to sit and rest and enjoy a moment of fellowship.  Drop by and sit with Rabbi Katy in the sukkah.  Shake the lulav and etrog and learn about their meaning. Bring your lunch if you'd like. We'll provide tea and dessert and companionship. RSVP here.

Contemplative Shabbat Walk, Saturday, October 14, 10:30 AM, Conservation Area, Wayland

Slow down for Shabbat and join Rabbi Katy on a meditative walk through the woods and beside the water, interspersed with readings, song, time for personal meditation, and discussion. RSVP here for exact location.

Havdalah Campfire with Singing and Storytelling, Saturday, October 21, 5:30 PM, Sudbury

Singing and sharing stories around a fire is one of humanity's oldest forms of entertainment. Join us for an evening of song, story, and campfire snacks. We will be singing niggunim - wordless melodies - and some easy-to-catch-onto chants. No previous knowledge or musical background necessary. Come to enjoy the warmth of the fire, to sing your heart out, or to just melt into the sounds of evening. Led by Aki and Rabbi Katy.

 RSVP here.

Blue Moon Full Moon Walk, Friday, October 27, 6:00 PM, Conservation Area, Wayland

Don’t miss your chance to see the Blue Moon. Join Rabbi Katy to welcome Shabbat on a walk by light of the full moon, across the fields and down to the Sudbury River. All ages are welcome and you are invited to bring a favorite moon story, song or poem to share. Discover and appreciate the magic of a full moon as we enter Shabbat. RSVP here.
