Last night Tikkun Middot Va’ad 3.5 met on Zoom, almost 3.5 years after the group’s first session. The conversation was rich, authentic and healing. Tikkun Middot asks us to increase our awareness of ourselves and of the moments when we have a choice of how we act, speak or respond. Tikkun Middot also provides us with ways to be compassionate to ourselves and nurture our souls. Participants seemed grateful for the space to learn and explore, especially in this time of the pandemic and political uncertainty.
I am excited to share with you that our Tikkun Middot program will be expanding in the fall with a new Va’ad and also a group that combines Wise Aging and Tikkun Middot. Watch for further details next month.
This weekend Rabbi David Jaffe will be at Beth Emet as we honor Rabbi Andrea London for her 25 years in the rabbinate. Rabbi Jaffe designed the curriculum for the Institute for Jewish Spirituality’s program that introduced Beth Emet to Tikkun Middot. He will be giving the D’var Torah on Friday evening and teaching on Shabbat afternoon at 4:00 pm at Beth Emet. This learning session is designed for those who have been engaged in the Tikkun Middot process, for those who are curious about it, or even for those who wish to experience a Shabbat afternoon study. More details below. I look forward to honoring Rabbi London and our Beth Emet staff as we learn together this weekend.
