Shabbat for the Earth
Transform your Shabbat service into a meaningful “Shabbat for the Earth” service. Kavaanot [intentions], meditations, and contemplations in relation to traditional prayers and congregant's personal experiences will connect them to Earth. The service can also be enhanced by a d’var Torah on the weekly parashah (Torah portion), Torah study, or a Bibliodrama (see below) that includes a connection to the Earth.
Torah and Earth
Engage in Torah study that relates to environmental issue and the Earth in a way that enables participants to observe and better understand their own place in the world and what that means for them.
Bibliodrama is a combination of scholarship and art, Bible and drama. It combines a close reading of biblical texts with searching, imaginative questions and offers people of all ages and levels of knowledge an opportunity to experience a method of highly creative study. Bring Bibliodrama to your synagogue and allow people to walk into the text and experience it first-hand in a way that they will never forget. Texts chosen will include a connection to the Earth.
