with Jonathan Hilton, President of Anthroposophy NYC

Micha-el’s Day (or Michaelmas in Christian terminology) is September 29th. Historically in the church, it is a festival for the archangels. The date was originally based on the date when a basilica in Rome was dedicated to the Archangel Michael. However, for the early Hebrews, Micha-el was called the “Countenance of Jehovah.” This festival can also be seen as a balance to the Spring Resurrection festival as an Autumn equinox counterpart in the cycle of the year.

Who is the Archangel Micha-el and what is his significance for our modern era?

Join us to celebrate this festival with a community gathering for families and an evening presentation for adults, and learn something about this Archangel and his meaning for today’s world.
