Hadassah CNS Summer Camp: Reimagining Jewish Life

Join us for 4 Wednesdays in July for Hadassah Chicago-North Shore's Annual Summer Camp. This year's Summer Camp encompasses "Reimagining Jewish Life". Much of life has changed since early 2020, but has your Jewish life changed? Summer Camp 2021 presents Reimagining Jewish Life with an eye to what remains the same, opportunities to consider change and how we can all grow in our Judaism, regardless of how we practice. Our sessions include: "Israel Right Now!" on July 7, "Why American Jews Need Remix Judaism" on July 14, "The Universal Appeal of SHTISEL" on July 21, and "Joyful Sound with Nefesh Mountain".

Read more about our musical guest, Nefesh Mountain, for our July 28th session here:

Listen to Nefesh Mountain's “Piece of the Sun,” a bluegrass song about Anne Frank from their upcoming third album, “Songs For the Sparrows,” which came out June 11 — the day before what would have been Anne Frank’s 92nd birthday, had she not died in a Nazi concentration camp in 1945: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJXfZGPhhIQ&t=4s

Social Superheroes

Looking for a fun way to learn social awareness, communication skills, and self-regulation? The Social Superhero Training Academy is open! In this speech-language pathologist-lead group, children will use Social Thinking Curriculum to learn to be flexible-thinking superheroes. They will learn to defeat cartoon characters who embody different social challenges such as Rock Brain, who makes people get stuck on their own ideas, Body Snatcher, who moves people’s bodies away from the group, and Topic Twistermeister, who makes people jump off topic. Practice these new social superhero powers by reading stories, playing games, making crafts, and more! This 8-week group will be offered in-person at our clinic!

This group is suggested for those ages 6-8, although it can be adjusted for older or younger children based on interest. Please contact Megan Kowalski for fee information.

Post Pandemic Mindfulness Meditation Sits for Twenty and Thirty Somethings

FREE! DROP-INS WELCOME
Mindfulness Meditation Sits Wednesday nights in July for Twenty and Thirty Somethings in Chicago
Dates: July 7- July 28 | Wednesdays in July | 7-8p
Educator: Led by Rachel Singer
After an incredibly stressful year of quarantine and isolation, we are re-emerging, reconnecting, and reimagining our footing together on new ground – while still living with the grief and anxieties from this past year.
At Orot, mindfulness in a Jewish framework is interwoven throughout many of our programs and offerings. The contemplative tradition, teachings, and practices offer us spiritual tools to slow down, cultivate deeper awareness, and live every day with greater skillfulness, compassion, and love.
The weekly Wednesday summer sit will meet weekly in July. Each session includes teaching, guided meditation, and time to sit in silent practice. This is a chance to be part of a mindful community and find peace as pandemic life continues to evolve.
Open to all levels. Open to Twenty and Thirty Somethings.
Location: The location will be south of the Clock Tower Cafe and north of the North Side Archery Club (closer to the Archery Club). The Waveland Parking Lot is the closest. Parking on N. Recreation Dr. near the tennis courts and sports fields is just a short walk.
Since it is outdoors we will have to be flexible about the specific spot. Rachel will have a hand-painted white and blue sign that says “Quiet Please”, so it will be easy to locate the group.
The location will be somewhere inside of the yellow circle on the attached map. To make sure we have a little bit of privacy we may be next to the bird sanctuary fence in an area surrounded by trees. It is not a large area, so it should be easy to find us. Come early so you can find us and get settled. Please let us know if you need any accommodations. Sunscreen, bug spray, a towel, or a chair to sit on are recommended, but opt
