-A weekly reminder from
Rabbi Shapiro that a change
in perspective can shift the focus of our day and even our lives.

Rabbi Zach Shapiro is a blog contributor to the weekly Jewish Journal where he shows how the simplest of daily experiences can become the most meaningful of life's blessings. All it takes is a moment in time.   We have an opportunity to harness "a moment in time," allowing our souls to be both grounded and lifted.

Did you know there are special song books called Shabbat Zemirot dedicated specifically for singing at Shabbat dinner tables? In January, we explored what it means to enter Shabbat through mindfulness and mediation. Please, join us for a
