Stretching into the Jewish New Year


Baruch atah, Adonai                                                         בָרוּךְ אַתָה יְיָ

Eloheinu Melech haolam,                                             אֱלֹהֵינן מֶלֶךְ הָעןֹלָם

matir asurim.                                                                   מַתִיר אֲסוּרִים

Praise to you, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the universe, who frees the captive. (For the ability to stretchspiritual interpretation)

As we enter the sacred time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, let us embody the gift of freedom.  The gift of free choice, to practice t’shuvah, turning once again toward our own goodness as we enter the new year.

Let us celebrate the ability to stretch, both physically and spiritually, as we challenge ourselves to live in ways we may never have thought possible – reaching new heights of awareness and  unity with our fellow human beings.

L’shana Tova, G’mar Chatimah Tova! Happy New Year and may you be sealed in the Book of Life.

Namaste, Shalom, and Love,

  1. i love your blog. it’s inspiring. i also listened to your chanting on youtube to learn the chant starting with ahava. i love the chant. but if i might make one suggestion- the music instrument is a nice background but a bit loud in this particular recording. having heard u in class the music was a bit softer and easier to hear u. i sort of hope u can tape again so we can hear your voice louder than the instrument. it’s such a beautiful voice. thanks for sharing

    • Thanks so much Arlynn! I agree- we are working on those details, seeing as it’s not a studio environment. I will work on uploading one with better balance between voice and instrument. Love having you in class. Namaste and shalom!
