Sunrise Sukkot

A Shabbat Morning Nature Awe Walk, Co-Sponsored by the Jewish Mindfulness Center of St. Louis

Saturday, September 30 at 9 a.m.
Creve Coeur Lake Park

Join Rabbi Goldstein for a Shabbat morning awe walk in celebration of Sukkot. During an
awe walk we shift our attention from internal thoughts and concerns to the beauty of the world around us. Experiences of awe have been shown to reduce anxiety and stress, as well as increase feelings of joy, which makes this the perfect way to celebrate Z’man Simchateinu, the Season of our Joy. The morning will include moments of reflection, learning, and prayer.

Important Notes: Our walk will take place at the Mallard Lake Loop Trail at Creve Coeur Lake Park, 2348 Creve Coeur Mill Road; park to the left of the Lakehouse Restaurant. Mallard Lake Loop is a flat 2-mile path.

This event is free, but registration is required.
