High Holidays: The Shvitz


The Schvitz: A Selichot with Sweat

Saturday, September 21st, 2019
9:00 pm

Schvitz with Rabbi Lori at Wi Spa.

Bring $25 for spa entrance fee

Please RSVP via eventbrite so we know to wait for you in the lobby.

Sweat it out before the new year.

The Selichot ritual prepares us for the deep dive into High Holidays through a liturgical introduction. Open Temple takes a deeper dive and invites you to plunge into the new year. With a community visit to WiSpa, participants will chant into the new year while steam-rooming, jacuzzi-ing, spa-ing out at the juice bar with learning led by Rabbi Lori. Musical Director Josh Goldberg leads nigunim and liturgical readiness in WiSpa’s unique Jade room, Mud room and Salt room.

A night of aligning mind, body and spirit.


“Sing unto God a new song.”
-Psalm 96

If God is already tired, as suggests the Psalm, of hearing the old song, all the more so will ordinary mortals be.
-Alcalay (20th c. Jewish lexicographer)

Sing a new Song.
