October 2020 Bulletin Ref3

Come Outdoors with B’nai Sholom!

Plans are underway for a series of fall (and possibly winter) events designed to deepen our connections to Jewish spirituality, the natural world and each other.  Plus, they involve getting together live and in person!

Events will take place at Five Rivers, Thacher Park, Henry Hudson Park, the Crossings, or similar outdoor sites.

  • For those who enjoy a hike, small groups will walk to a remote location for an outdoor service of prayer, song and personal reflections that emphasize the experience of God in nature. Participants may also choose to engage in a longer hike together before or after the formal program.  Later in the year we might cross-country ski or snowshoe.
  • For those who like being out-of-doors but would rather skip the walking part, we will offer a small group outdoor service located close to a parking lot.

Both types of events will include activities for participants to get to know each other better.

Social distancing, masks, and limits on group size will all be employed to ensure the safety of all participants.  Advance registration will be required to keep numbers low and to communicate regarding safety protocols.

Please watch the weekly e-announcements for specific dates and how to sign up.

In the meantime, we are looking for congregants interested in helping to lead these events.  If you are interested in helping or want more information, please contact Libby Liebschutz at 518-466-7034 or libbyliebschutz@gmail.com.
