Join us for brunch at Rhodes River Ranch Resturant, in Oso, on Sunday, January 22, at 11 am. The Ranch raises and trains high-end horses. The restaurant is in a glassed-in area that takes up one whole side of the riding arena, so you can watch horses being trained while you eat. In addition to the Ranch, the Oso Landslide and the new Whitehorse Trail are in the area, and worth a visit. Hosted by Susan and Michael Cross. Click here to RSVP.

Rosh Chodesh Shevat Dairy Potluck and Tarot Reading! January 25 at 6:30pm

WomnSederJoin the women of Temple Beth Or for a special Rosh Chodesh Shevat celebration as our very own Madame Amy Paquette teaches us about the connection between Judaism and Tarot reading. Tarot cards are a complete and potent set of psychological symbols loosely based on the kabbalistic psychological model.  Learn how the 22 cards in the deck mirror the 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet, and how Hebrew letters were frequently part of early tarot card designs.

Madame Amy will teach us how Tarot can help with self-exploration and illuminate the unconscious.

Please bring a vegetarian potluck item to share and click here to RSVP.
