The community is invited to experience a refuat hanefesh, a renewal of spirit, at a Service of Hope and Healing at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 28 at The Jewish Theological Seminary, 3080 Broadway (at 122nd Street) in New York City.

The service will weave together prayer, song, story and reflection to create a sense of community in which participants may draw comfort and strength from one another and from Jewish tradition. Themes central to Passover, enslavement and liberation, will be explored. Open to both men and women, the service will be led by Rabbi Lisa Gelber and Danielle benSimhon, a cantorial student at JTS.

Photo ID is required. RSVPs are welcome by calling (212) 678-8814 or email.

Editors/Reporters: For further information, please contact Sherry S. Kirschenbaum in the JTS Department of Communications at (212) 678-8953 or email.
