Refa'enu: A Service of Healing - Now Virtual

Healing services are held 4-5 times each year on select Tuesday evenings at 7 pm in the Rabbi's Study. This service is intended for those who are seeking physical or emotional healing for themselves or someone they care about. We share inspirational and comforting readings and music and enjoy the warmth and support of our community. The service usually lasts about an hour and is open to all, no RSVP needed. 

The next healing service will be online via Zoom, on Tuesday, June 2nd, at 7pm. The service will last for approximately 1 hour.  The Zoom link for the service is -

If any of you are interested in participating in the service, but have not used Zoom before, helpful instructions are included as an attachment below. I suggest that you click the Zoom link in advance, which should prompt you to download the Zoom app, to get that out of the way before Tuesday at 7.  Note that Zoom will work from a smartphone, a tablet, or a computer. You can see everyone and navigate more easily on the bigger screen of a computer, so personally I'd recommend that option, if possible. If your computer doesn't have a camera, you can join via audio only and still see everyone else.  Looking forward to being "together" during this challenging time, when community support and healing of every kind are so desperately needed.


FYI, the healing service schedule for this year, along with the currently planned leaders, will be:
Dec 3rd        Debbie Karl
Feb 4th        Rabbi Vivian
Mar 31st      Rabbi Alanna
June 2nd     Rhoda Gansler

Hope you will want to join us for one or more of our meaningful and supportive services.
