A Live Walking Tour of Jewish Berlin

A Live Walking Tour of Jewish Berlin
Sunday, May 21, 2023, 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm

Add to iCal | Add to Google Calendar

We will follow the traces of Berlin’s Jewish community from its beginnings in the 17th century and up to our days. Having been in continuous existence for 351 years, it witnessed many of the dramatic changes that shaped the Jewish world as we know it – Reform Judaism, the Holocaust, emigration and immigration.

Yoav Sapir is 42 years old, was born in Israel and studied German-Jewish history in Jerusalem, Vienna and Berlin. He’s an active member in one of Berlin’s synagogue communities and has been guiding since 2009.

There is no charge for this event. Donations to our Programming Fund are greatly appreciated. Your confirmation email will include the Zoom link and meeting information.

If needed, the introduction session is available here (Watch Here)

Both variations are presented by Yogi Steven Russell of Becoming Sound Yoga

We hear about self-care, mindfulness and meditation practices more often these days. These positive practices have been in use for thousands of years to bring lives into balance. Stimulation of brain waves brings focus to stress relief. You may find that using singing bowls will help calm thoughts, relieve tension, and help you become more conscious of your breathing. This consciousness may promote a sense of inner calm and relaxation.

Steven Russell is a certified Yoga Teacher and professional musician. Please enjoy the accompanying Personal Wellness videos in this series, which will be available to watch on the Monmouth County Library’s YouTube Channel.
