Ecstatic Mincha
A Shabbat afternoon dance experience. A new way to engage in prayer. We are a group of likeminded folks who love Shabbat, but hate sitting still. Mincha is perfect -- it is ecstatic, it is communal, it is a gift, and it is in the afternoon. What are we doing? Dancing. Praying with our bodies. Engaging our whole selves. Meeting amazing people. Hanging out with friends. Hearing great music. Moving our souls. Note that recorded music will be played during this session.
