The Aramaic Beatitudes


The Aramaic Beatitudes are the closest translations to Jesus' own time. Here is an example: The traditional "Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven," in Aramaic is translated "Ripe are those who know at the end of the day, their only possession is their breath, and there they find rest in God."

Come and join us for a fascinating evening of learning, new information and JOY! This is a 2-part series running on March 19 and March 26, 2019 from 7-8:30pm in the Dominican Center, Wellness Room.

RSVP by March 16, 2019 at or call (510) 933-6360
