Poems of Passover

Saturday, April 3, 7:30 PM: We invite you to join us for our second Poetry evening on the themes of our spring holiday, Pesach. We will begin with Havdalah (the ritual at the end of Shabbat) and then share poems about freedom, renewal, rebirth, springtime, injustice, oppression, liberation, and hope. This is just a partial list of possible themes for this season. We invite you to read a poem that you love or a poem you have written that speaks to any of these themes or to what is on your mind and heart these days. You can also just come and listen. If you would like to read, please email marian.kelner(at) and let her know so we can better plan the evening. We hope to see you then!

Participation link will go out in our How to Participate email.

Kabbalat Shabbat with Molly Bajgot

Friday, April 9, 7 PM: 

Join Molly Bajgot for a vibrant Shabbat prayer service. We will follow a traditional service structure with a twist. Come to hear new and familiar tunes, to sing, davven, and meditate.

Molly grew up in Eastern Massachusetts and now calls the Valley home. She queer, Ashkenazi Jew, singer-songwriter and Jewish community organizer currently living in Easthampton on unceded Pocumtuc and Nipmuc land. She works with both young people and adults to connect with and rediscover the innate magic in Judaism.

Participation links will be shared in our How to Participate email.
