Shabbat and Yoga at B’nai Israel
Congregation B’nai Israel is hosting a special Yoga Shabbat from 10 to 11:30 a.m., May 21. Certified Yoga instructor and Co-President of Congregation B’nai Israel’s Sisterhood, Andrea Collier, will join Rabbi Debra Orenstein in incorporating yoga postures into the morning prayers.
Participants should wear clothing that is comfortable to move in order to enhance and explore the meaning of the Sabbath prayers through movement. The culmination of the service will be a silent meditation, as is customary in both Jewish services and yoga classes. No yoga experience is required.
Location: 53 Palisade Ave., Emerson. For more information, call 201-265-2272 or visit bisrael.com.
