Nov. 19: Recipes for a Sacred Life

14 Nov

Please join us for an evening with Rivvy Neshama, author of Recipes for a Sacred Life: True Stories and a Few Miracles, Tuesday, November 19, 7:00 PM, Studio 34, 4522 Baltimore Avenue

From dancing to forgiving, from walking at dawn to sharing dinner with a stranger, Rivvy Neshama invites us to experience the sacred — in unexpected places and everyday life. Her stories are magical yet down-to-earth and steeped in ancient wisdom. They remind us of the sacredness of our own lives, and connect us more deeply with love, joy, and purpose.

Not your typical spiritual book, Recipes for a Sacred Life is rich in heart and humor. And the life experiences it relates—from the searching in youth, to marriage and divorce, birth and death, parenting and grandparenting—will resonate with people of all ages.

A free event. Books will be available for purchase.

Co-hosted by Bindlestiff Books and Kol Tzedek Synagogue

“Rivvy’s delightful stories open the heart. Read them, one at a time, and then daydream on them … and you will take on a glow of joy and feel more secure in God’s world.”                                – Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
