It is a similar moment in jewish camps..as the activities and work stop , sjhabbat music plays and kids and staff change clothes and approach the moment of toilet gathering
Sheldon Dorph
01:48:24
the word toilet was supposed to be the hebrew of prayer excuse the auto correct shelly
Susie Rodenstein
01:48:58
Yes, the beautiful transformation in camp is especially felt when seeing the sea of white, and the calming Niggunim before Tefillot for Kabbalat Shabbat begin!
Suzanne Levin
01:49:12
My children and grandchildren attended and attend Habonim camps. Shabbat is huge there!

Sheldon Dorph

I thought of the “sea of the candles” as parallel to the emersion in the mikveh(ritual bath) before sabbath
Sarah Elpern
01:57:45
I thought of the mikvah, too.
Susie Rodenstein
01:58:09
Yes that is exactly what I thought of at first.
Cynthia Kravitz
02:01:23
interesting 'swimming taught by mother image." Pirkei Avot gives that responsibility to the father. A nice contrast .
Sheldon Dorph
02:02:45
sand is also meaning weekday same hebrew word?
Heather Silverman
02:03:22
That’s a great double meaning!
Susie Rodenstein
02:05:49
Wishing Suzanne a Refu’ah Shleimah!
Denah S. Bookstein
02:07:04
A refuah shleimah, Suzanne
Gail Lipsitz
02:08:43
I feel that swimming in the Shabbat candles is a positive experience of immersing oneself in welcoming the spirit and beauty of Shabbat

Rena Panush

Many writers talk about sending their poem or book out, hoping it will be received with love and respect by the reader. And the reader may change the poem or book’s meaning through their own reading.
Susie Rodenstein
02:33:21
So sorry I have to sign off now to go to another seminar.
Debbie Weber
02:33:42
Rachel - R'Fuah Shlaymah.
Sheldon Dorph
02:34:19
poetry like music can be the spiritual expression for jewish people in a sense it is their renewal as is the dy of rest in tradition
Denah S. Bookstein
02:35:02
Shira, do you have anything so old-fashioned as a CD ?
Chana (Ann Ellen) Dickter

Beautiful music!

Marcia Falk
02:40:42
Question for Rafi and everyone: I'm not aware of a prohibition against reading "secular" poetry--or any poetry--on Shabbat, which is the premise of Rafi's poem. Please enlighten me. (I do of course understand that someone observing Shabbat would not open an email on Shabbat--but that's a different question.) This is not a criticism of the poem, which I very much enjoyed. Just a question about its premise. Rafi? Eliaz?
Edy Parker
02:40:46
Wonderful program, thank you!
Lynnie Mirvis
02:40:54

refuah shleymah - another incredible class - todah todah rabah
elizabeth caplun
02:43:56
Marcia, I think the poetic tension is between writing (prohibited action) and reading (not prohibited). Hence the hope that the power of words will bridge the two and that the Kavanah of the poem will be preserved
edna janco
02:44:21
thanks Rachel for this outstanding class. how i appreciated those unknown poems, to me, of course. Refua shalema and speedily. warmly, edna
Barbara Saunders
