Under the Wings of Rafa'el: A Healing Journey

  • Jewish Community Library 1835 Ellis Street San Francisco, CA 94115 (map)

Free program with free garage parking on Pierce Street between Ellis and Eddy streets. 

 Cantor, singer, composer, Reiki practitioner, and life coach Sharon Bernstein has written Under the Wings of Rafa’el, a healing journey of prayers, chants, meditations, explorations, and creative exercises. Designed for people at different stages of healing, this book and companion recordings combine traditional Jewish texts with experiential approaches to offer support and sustenance for healing. In her presentation, Bernstein will discuss the creation of this healing journey as well as her experiential relationship with liturgy and prayer, and share some of the music from the CD.  

Cantor Sharon Bernstein has been building prayer experiences for two decades, incorporating musical expressions from around the world, developing new rituals, and writing music for liturgy and Yiddish poems. A graduate of the Jewish Theological Seminary, she served as cantor for Congregation Sha’ar Zahav of San Francisco.

Program made possible, in part, by Carla Ruff in memory of Dr. Robert T. Mendle. Co-presented by Congregation Sha'ar Zahav.
