Every Move You Make: Turning Your Life Into Spiritual Practice: Rabbi Pamela Wax

We tend to think of spiritual practices as "extras" in our life -- things like prayer, meditation, or yoga. In this workshop, the group will discuss these spiritual paths, but also expand the parameters of what constitutes spiritual practice. It can include your most intimate relationships, childcare, or housecleaning. Find out how our everyday living can also be spiritual practice.

Nurturing a Heart of Gratitude: Rabbi Shira Milgrom

Scientists and mystics alike tell us that the most likely way to happiness is by cultivating gratitude. Study some of these ancient and contemporary texts and consider why this spiritual practice - the practice of blessings - is so challenging and so filled with potential.

The Prayer of the Heart: Chana’s Story: Rabbi Cara Weinstein Rosenthal

Walk into almost any synagogue, and you’ll see people praying silently. Where did this practice come from? Delve into the story of Chana, the Biblical heroine from the Book of Samuel who transformed the way that Jews pray. Learn about how a mild-mannered Israelite woman became a liturgical innovator, and use Chana’s story as a lens to examine your own prayer lives and the uniqueness of women’s relationship to prayer.

rotaryThe Rotary Club of Scarsdale is involved in several charitable activities, and one of  the club's objectives is to raise funds for the Haitian Water Project, a project that supplies Haitian communities with self-sustaining water filtration systems that allow local residents to generate their own potable water. Last year they held their inaugural wine tasting event. The event was a smashing success, and they raised $15,000, with all of the proceeds going directly to the Haitian Water Project.

The second annual wine tasting event is coming up next month. The event will be held on Thursday March 24, 2011, 6-8pm, at the Fox Meadow Tennis Club, and the theme of the evening will once again be “Scarsdale Rotary, Turning Wine into Water”. This year’s proceeds will be used to expand the size and scope of the on-going Haitian Water Project, and will also be used for some other Scarsdale Rotary charities.

Tickets to the event are $60 per person, and include finger foods and the opportunity to taste wines from several countries.

Tickets are available by calling Thomas Cain, president of the Scarsdale Rotary Club, at 914-722-1215. Please come out and support the event!
