People of all ages enjoy stories. They laugh, sigh, cry, and smile as they enjoy age-old lessons and tales of Jewish communities throughout the world.
In the past, Jewish storytellers (maggidim) traveled from community to community to strengthen the heart and soul of the Jewish people. The stories told of greatness, nobility, and courage, celebrating the wisdom of the ages. They celebrated Jewish heritage and tradition; while at the same time, they elevated the hopes of people for a better tomorrow.
Rabbi Rachmiel Tobesman is an old time maggid (Jewish Storyteller) who will be telling stories at Congregation Oheb Sholom (555 Warwick Dr) in Reading, Pa on Sunday 13 December at 10:00 a.m., followed by a workshop on spiritual storytelling. He will tell special Chanukah stories at Congregation Beth Abraham Anshei Sfard (6208 Wallis Ave) in Baltimore, MD at 7:00 p.m. on 14 December.
The simple unfolding of the maggid’s stories strongly motivates a person toward the Holy One, Blessed be He. All the stories reflect the mystery, wonder, beauty, honor, tradition, and spirituality of all people. The stories contain great power to uplift people and help them on their spiritual journeys.
Please join us for a special Chanukah telling of tales of old. For more information contact Project Shalom at email@example.com
