The Power of Storytelling with Beth Sabo Novick
Engagement, humor, learning, wisdom: all that and a rollicking good tale -- such is the art and practice of the storyteller. For us, this will be embodied by Beth Sabo Novick. She will tell her Havurah Vatik audience about the power of storytelling, teach us what makes a good story, and treat us to some wonderful stories along the way.
Beth is co-founder of the Jewish Storytelling Festival in Saratoga Springs. She tells personal Jewish stories and Jewish folk tales, and she has reveled in this practice for pretty much ever. When she is not telling stories, she teaches workshops on stress and joy, she coaches people to let go of anxiety and fear. And she is a licensed massage therapist and hypnotist. She is going to have us in the palm of her hand!
She is married (to Larry Novick); they have two teenage sons, who have probably long been a primary audience. Maybe less so nowadays? If so, we will help fill the gap.
Havurah Vatik in the time of Covid: Bring your own lunch; pajama bottoms welcomed; coffee or tea suggested. Nothing supplied but valuable information, exchange of ideas, opportunity to "see" friends and acquaintances.
The mission of Havurah Vatik is to provide Jewish seniors, ages 55 and older, opportunities for socialization, intellectual stimulation, and entertainment in warm and caring settings that celebrate Jewish life. The program, which is sponsored by Temple Sinai and meets at Congregation Shaara Tfille, is open to all Saratoga area Jewish seniors. It is primarily funded by a grant from United Jewish Federation and First Niagara Bank.
