A Scholar-in-Residence Shabbaton with Reb Simcha Raphael
March 6-7, 2020

REB SIMCHA RAPHAEL, PH.D. is Founding Director of DA’AT INSTITUTE for Death Awareness, Advocacy and Training, Adjunct Professor of Religion at LaSalle University, and in private practice as a psychotherapist and spiritual director in Philadelphia. Ordained by Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi as a Rabbinic Pastor, he is a member of the Rabbis Without Borders Network, and author of the ground-breaking classic Jewish Views of the Afterlife.

Sponsor a Shabbat Service

Chadeish Yameinu's policy is that we don't turn away members who cannot afford full membership dues. The flip side of that commitment, of course, is the need for those who can pay to step up, so our services can be available to all who need them. CY's membership dues are not quite enough to meet the full costs of Reb Eli's compensation, let alone our services.

 

One way that members and friends can perform this mitzvah of accessibility with us is to sponsor a Shabbat service.

Sponsorship involves $100 per service. In return, sponsoring individuals receive both the satisfaction of their good deed, and public recognition and thanks during the service and in CY's newsletter.

 

It is said that even as we have kept Shabbat, Shabbat has kept the Jewish people. For the price of a dinner out, members can perform these important mitzvot with us. Interested individuals should contact Shabbat coordinator Shefa Rich changhua.rich@gmail.com.
