Sukkot
All Day

Sukkot is the week-long Jewish Feast of Booths or Tabernacles, during which meals are eaten out of doors in a sukkah (tent) in remembrance of the years the people of Israel spent in the wilderness.  The first two and last two days are times to refrain from work.

Event Image Exhibition | "David Roberts: Travels in the Holy Land" | Aug. 10 - Dec. 22
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter who traveled to the Near East in the late 1830s and produced a series of bound, hand-colored lithographs of Egypt and the Holy Land in the 1840s from sketches made during his travels. These folios provided Europeans, and eventually Americans, with their first views of the exotic Orient, changing forever their vision of Egypt and the Middle East. This small exhibition features several of Roberts’ prints.

Mindfulness Meditation
4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

The practice of mindfulness refers to our efforts and discipline at being fully present in the now, of living in the present moment. Mindfulness practice nourishes an understanding of the interconnectedness of our lives with the larger world we inhabit, allowing us to develop an enhanced awareness of the present, a stillness that cultivates a mind of love, compassion, kindness and peace.

Beginners are most welcome!
