Report on my session at Liberal Shabbaton (Nov 2015)

“It was very special to be part of a large congregation of Liberal Jews, praying together, and the earlier session I went to prepared me for it well. This was taken by Alexander Massey and it was a meditation on Elohai N’shamah for which he has written music and devised physical movements. We discussed the nature of the soul, where and what it is, now and after the death of the body, which was a very deep way to start the day. I found it allowed me to move from worrying about the mechanics of my travel to Swindon and properly get into a Shabbat state of mind, literally take a breath and stop mundane worries and enter into the day of rest, ready for the prayer service. His work is available on www.alexandermassey.com which has the music as well as the words in Hebrew and English and transliteration, source readings and reflections.” Reported by Alison Turner of Herefordshire (Liberal) Jewish Community
