On the Wings of Shekhinah
Rediscovering Judaism's Divine Feminine
by

Rabbi Leah Novick

Written with warmth and clarity, this book interweaves historical views of Judaism's divine feminine principle with thoughtful quotes and guided meditations. Rabbi Leah Novick offers healing strategies for both Jews and non-Jews disaffected by rigid gender roles. Awareness of the Shekhinah's energy within and around us helps bring hope to a planet afflicted by war, violence, and environmental abuse--this book shows how to find and use that energy.

 When ordering online or by phone, use the code ENEWS to receive the discount.

  RELAY FOR LIFE





AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
RELAY FOR LIFE

of Glen Ellyn, Wheaton, and Winfield


On June 12th, 2009, the Theosophical Society will be participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life event at Glenbard South High School in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Joining 54 other teams, our relay team of 15 will endeavor to walk continuously around the football field track from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. 
 
This community based program will honor cancer survivors and their families as well as those who have lost the fight against this terrible disease. The American Cancer Society will use the donations raised by our relay team to continue their outreach to cancer patients. Money raised from this event will go to our local community to provide wigs for cancer patients as well as to provide rides to and from treatments.
 
We are very excited to be part of this event and are asking for your support in the way of donations to our team. If you have donated to the American Cancer Society in the past or wish to donate for the first time, please consider helping our team meet its fundraising goal by giving to our team today.
 
Please visit the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Glen Ellyn, Wheaton & Winfield website at www.relayforlifegww.com and follow the donation link to the Theosophical Society team. Once there, you can choose to make an online/ offline donation to one of the team participants or make a general donation to the team by clicking on the icon to the right under the fundraising tally marker.
 
If you need any assistance in making your donation please contact Mark Roemmich at mroemmich@theosophical.org or by telephone at 630-668-1571 x334. Your contribution will be most welcome!

CHUSHUL ORPHANAGE IN TIBET
By Tim Boyd
 
bradden bkMany of you have been following our fundraising efforts for the Chushul orphanage in Tibet (for information click here ). I am happy to report that we have just received approval for the building plans from the Chinese government. During the course of this campaign through the generosity of many the TOS has raised over $11,000 - more than enough to complete the original project of building a bathroom/shower addition. We have also been able to substantially broaden the scope of the project by broadening our network. By involving other donors and other organizations we are now in a position to not only build the bath/shower, but we will be upgrading the water system (which regularly froze during the winter), adding a septic system, solar water heaters, and adding a second floor with 3 bedrooms to the existing dormitory. With building set to begin shortly we are still short of our goal.
 
We have received a most generous offer. Between now and July 26th any donations received up to a total of $5000 will be matched dollar for dollar. If this is a project that appeals to you, now is a chance for you to have a significant impact on these childrens' lives.
 
You can either donate by using our Paypal option (go to "CEF: Tibetan Orphanages - best use); or send a check to Theosophical Order of Service, PO Box 660 Warrrenville, IL 60555. Indicate Chushul Orphanage in the check memo.

Thank you for your support!
