We will make and enjoy vegetarian (with gluten free and vegan options in many cases) dishes inspired by the traditional dishes of each country. On this exciting and tasty journey we will be reminded that while our cuisines may taste different, they share many common elements, among them the intention to nourish not just our bodies but also our spirits. There is a seat for everyone at the table, so grab your passport and let’s go eat around the world! First stop: Dominican Republic.

Whither Sephardic Music?

  • UNC Chapel Hill, Hill Hall, Moeser Auditorium (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

As Sephardic studies develop with great impetus as a new field within American Jewish Studies the question of how musicology participates in them remains open. Surveying the present state of Sephardic music research, this lecture will explore some future prospects in this area of musical inquiry not only in its Jewish contexts but beyond them, in Hispanic and world music perspectives.

This event is free and open to the public, no tickets or reservations required. It will be held in Hill Hall, Moeser Auditorium.

Thursday Conversations on Sage-ing

  • Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Raleigh (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Gather in circle each session to explore the Sage-ing® process, enabling us to live the second half of our lives aging more consciously. Topics include our images of aging, relationships, aging as a spiritual journey, life review, the gift of forgiveness, facing personal mortality. Bring a journal and an open heart each session as we deepen our knowing of self and one another. This is the first of three sessions - April 4th, April 18th, and May 2nd.

Please register at www.yavneh-raleigh.org/sage-ing to help us plan set up and materials for each session. There is no cost to attend, although donations to support Yavneh programming will be accepted. Popcorn/snacks provided.

Facilitator Stacy Grove is a Jewish Interfaith Minister and Spiritual Director, a member of Yavneh, and part-time Pastoral Care Minister at Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

This offering is based on the work of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, who published from AGE-ing to SAGE-ing, which proposed a profound new vision of growing older. He established the Spiritual Eldering Institute in 1997, that later became Sage-ing® and Sage-ing® International. Many now gather in circles throughout the country to share their wisdom of the elder years.
