A Shabbat of Spirit: July 24-25
Makom Shalom is pleased to offer a special Shabbat
with Maggid Jim Brulé:
The Spirituality of Maggidut
What is Maggidut?
Maggidut is the art of communicating spiritual meaning through stories.
Stories are the way we understand and communicate about our worlds, the spiritual and the secular. Stories allow us to create and share meaning in ways that “slip by” our intellectual censors and touch our deeper selves.
Friday evening: Services begin at 7:30. In true Makom Shalom style, the evening will be filled with music and ruach – and stories from the Maggid. Come welcome Shabbas with us, and set the tone for the rest of this week’s “world out of time.” At the Annex: RSVP for directions. (South Loop)
Saturday: Services begin at 10:30. We’ll have a chance to sing, pray, read and study Torah until lunchtime. Then join our Tish: an afternoon of joyous feasting and study. Tales will be told, and instruction given in Maggidut: the art of telling deep stories. If you’ve wanted to learn to tell these stories – come and join us! If you tell stories, and want to hone your skill – come and join us! If you just want to hear some beautiful stories – come and join us! RSVP for directions (Lincoln Park)
Havdalah: We’ll close Shabbas about six with a special Havdalah service, combining the beauty of the traditional service with a rich story. Once the service is concluded, we’ll adjourn to a pot luck dinner; RSVP for directions. (West Rogers Park)
