Marcia Falk Presents Her New Book
THE DAYS BETWEEN
Blessings, Poems, & Directions of the Heart
for the Jewish High Holiday Season

Copies of Marcia Falk’s books will be available for purchase.
 
Marcia Falk is a widely published poet and translator of Hebrew and Yiddish. Her books include the acclaimed translation The Song of Songs: Love Lyrics from the Bible and the groundbreaking liturgical work The Book of Blessings. Falk lives in Berkeley and travels internationally to give talks and readings, lead innovative prayer services, and o-ffer workshops on creating new liturgy.
 
In The Days Between, Marcia Falk's long-awaited sequel to her path-breaking Book of Blessings, Ms. Falk recreates the holidays’ key prayers and rituals from an inclusive perspective. Among the offerings in The Days Between are Hebrew and English blessings for festive meals, prayers for synagogue services, and poems and meditations for quiet reflection. Emphasizing introspection as well as relationship to others, Falk evokes her vision of the High Holidays as “ten days of striving to keep the heart open to change.”
 

Or Shalom Community Picnic

Our end-of-summer picnic is Sunday, August 24, from 12:00 to 3:00 PM. We’ll meet at our favorite picnic spot at Marx Meadow in Golden Gate Park (JFK Drive around 27th Avenue), and we’re providing lunch and drinks. Please bring reusable dishes and flatware (we’ll have disposables as a backup), a side-dish or dessert to share, along with balls, bats, games, and musical instruments. You might want to also bring blankets or folding chairs. Remember to dress in layers. Guests are welcome; this is a great opportunity to introduce your friends to our Or Shalom community. See you there!
