Submit by July 31st for this special publication for the High Holidays
During Elul (the month of spiritual preparation before the High Holidays begin), the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Reconstructionist Rabbinical College/ Jewish Reconstructionist Communities (RRC/JRC) and Ritualwell will join together to showcase creative and inspiring High Holiday teachings, divrei The Five Books of Moses, and the foundation of all of Jewish life and lore. The Torah is considered the heart and soul of the Jewish people, and study of the Torah is a high mitzvah. The Torah itself a scroll that is hand lettered on parchment, elaborately dressed and decorated, and stored in a decorative ark. It is chanted aloud on Mondays, Thursdays, and Shabbat, according to a yearly cycle. Sometimes "Torah" is used as a colloquial term for Jewish learning and narrative in general., liturgy, rituals, music, poetry, and art.
Submissions should broadly respond or connect to the theme of “Embracing the Stranger”—the stranger we encounter inside as we grow in self-awareness, the strangers we meet in the world around us, and the intersection between the two.
Selected submissions will be shared across multiple Reconstructionist platforms (websites, email newsletters, and social media) during the month of Elul (August 22 – September 20, 2017). We’d love to include your voice!
Please forward this call widely and send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

We will consider submissions sent before July 31st, 2017.
