October 23, 2013JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – On Friday, Oct. 25, Rabbi Ron Herstik will hold the inaugural Shabbat service for "Synagogue Without Walls."
The Shabbat evening will offer an opportunity to enter a time of healing and experience Jewish spirituality through prayer, song, meditation and storytelling.
Led by Herstik and accompanied by Dr. Terry Segal, licensed marriage and family therapist, as well as David Krosner, a talented musician, the evening will be filled with song, moments of reflection and joyous Shabbat celebration.
The evening is an invitation to the many unaffiliated Jews and their significant others who long to participate in a Jewish community, Herstik said.
"Synagogue Without Walls" is Herstik's effort to bring Jews together who are open and seeking spiritual fulfillment.
"It is a place where the soul and spirit are touched by a deep sense of spiritual possibility," he said. "It's a place where tradition and the present are woven together to create a purpose-filled Judaism and where questions are welcomed."
Herstik has served the Jewish community for 36 years, and most recently retired as senior rabbi of Congregation Dor Tamid in Johns Creek.
Herstik founded Congregation Dor Hadash in San Diego, Calif., where he pioneered Jewish Family Education, storytelling, and the creation of Havurot (fellowship groups) within a congregational setting.
A graduate of UCLA, Herstik also studied at the University of Southern California, Brown University and was ordained at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion as a Reform rabbi.
