North Hawaii Chavurah & KBS Event: Erev Shabbat and Chanukah candles on Zoom, Friday, December 11


We have a wonderful program set up starting at 5:30pm this Friday, December 11th. Joel and Michelle Levey, world renowned meditation teachers and part time residents of the Big Island, will lead us in the Channuka blessings for the second night as well as a meditation to help us resonate more deeply with the themes of the holiday. They will be joined by Derek Wright, accomplished and multi talented musician, who has just released an album.
We will conclude the program with the Shabbat blessings.
