Diwali Celebration

Come and join us to celebrate Diwali!

Diwali is an ancient indian tradition that celebrates the victory of good over evil, light over darkness. Rows of candles are lit and windows are kept open to help Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, find her way into people’s homes.

You can find Henna Artists, Rangoli Painting, Bharatanatyam Dancing, traditional Indian snacks, Sarees and more!

Whether you want to immerse yourself in another culture or want to celebrate this religious holiday with us, everyone is more than welcome!

The format will be simple and open to all. A space to relax and share where inspiring words, prayers and Sacred Writings will be offered before and after periods of silence. Also to reflect, ponder and to listen and comment on any insights gained. All are welcome.

Jill and Clive would be very happy for anyone attending to offer contributions such as bringing along and sharing a favourite poem, song, prayer, quotation or maybe a piece of music. In short a space to unwind and to find fresh inspiration during busy university life.

Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah 2016 Images 6Rosh Hashanah 5777 (2016)

by Maxine Tomashefsky, Past Chairman of Council of Christians and Jews, Lincoln

Jewish communities all around the world are celebrating the High Holidays beginning with one of the holiest days of their year –  Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

It is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, and a day of judgement and coronation of God as king of the universe. This year the two-day holiday starts on October 2. It is the beginning of the seventh month of the Jewish calendar, Tishri.

It is a time for an epic journey for the soul, a time of personal reflection and prayer, a time to ask God to grant us a year of peace, prosperity and blessings.

Jews believe God balances a person’s good deeds over the past year against their wrongdoings. The day marks a time of reflection and penitence, and worshippers ask God for forgiveness.

Customs include blowing the shofar – a hollowed-out ram’s horn – and eating symbolic foods such as apples dipped in honey to evoke a “sweet new year”, challah bread shaped in a round loaf to symbolise  a circle of life and the lighting of candles on the two evenings.

On the first afternoon of Rosh Hashanah it is customary to go to a body of water (ocean, river, or lake) and perform the Tashlich ceremony, in which we cast our sins into the water, symbolically evoking the verse, “And You shall cast their sins into the depths of the sea.”
