Please join us for another outdoor morning prayer experience in the beautiful Berkshires. We will gather together at Guilder Pond on Mt. Washington for an alternative morning prayer service that will include chanting, meditation and davening.

if weather permits there will be the opportunity for swimming or simply immersing in the pond, so bring a swim suit and towel if you wish.

Please RSVP to this email if you plan to attend.
