Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun magazine, invites you to celebrate the High Holidays at Beyt Tikkun Synagogue-Without-Walls in Berkeley, California. For five days of food, music, and dance, you’ll feast on vegan potluck and hear the spiritually charged ideas of speakers such as Rabbis Phyllis Berman, Arthur Waskow, and Lynn Gottleib; Pastor J. Alfred Smith of Allen Temple Baptist Church; and Spoken Word Poet Joshua Healey. If you’re interested and want to know more, check out the video I took of Rabbi Lerner discussing his services, below.
Then register at beyttikun.org. No one will be turned away for lack of funds! Services are in Berkeley, California, mostly at the Pacific School of Religion, 1798 Scenic Avenue, Berkeley, CA (although services on September 4 will be at Zaytuna College, 2515 Hillegass Avenue, Berkeley CA, and on September 6 at 951 Cragmont Avenue, also in Berkeley). It’s easily worth the shlepp, even if you can’t meet Chamoodie!
