December 3 at 10:30 am

Join Reb David and Rev. Michelle Ingalls, spiritual leader of One Heart-One Mind Center for Spiritual Living as they facilitate prayers, songs, readings, and teachings on finding our compassion in a divided and troubled world. Rev. Michelle says, “Recognizing that many people in the world are facing challenges, compassion calls us to empathize and at the same time hold the space open for what is possible.”

Leaders from both communities will bring their offerings on this theme. One-Heart One-Mind Center for Spiritual Living is a “new thought,” Science of Mind congregation located in Poway, California. Participants from the Havurah will include Ruchama Clarke, Rabbi David, and para-rabbinic spiritual leaders Ayala Zonnenschein and Cyrise Schachter. Reb David says, “This promises to be a very special service since our theologies and approach to God and making our world a better place are so closely aligned.”  The service will be offered on Zoom.
