#ReimagineLoss Twitter Chat Archive

This past Friday afternoon, we hosted the third in our series of #ReimagineRitual Twitter chats, this one on #ReimagineLoss. We discussed ways to remagine Jewish mourning rituals, touching on subjects such as how ritual provides structure for our grief, making sense of the phrase “Baruch Dayan Ha-emet,” and grieving practices in Jewish interfaith families. We appreciate the many voices represented in this chat. The aim of these chats is to be the first step in ongoing conversations. If you missed the chat, please review the edited version of the chat (slightly rearranged for clarity of topic threads), and feel free to comment below with any thoughts you have in response. Continue to use the hashtags #ReimagineLoss and #ReimagineRitual on Twitter to keep the conversation going. And stay tuned for a blog post on grieving for a non-Jewish relative by Erika Davis, and a ritual created by Rabbis Yosef Goldman and Annie Lewis.

#ReimagineRitual is all about highlighting topics that matter to the Jewish community and our fellow travelers today. What future topics do you want to see covered in our chats? Your voice counts, and we want to hear from you! If you have an idea for a topic, we encourage to reach out and let us know. Comment here, on our FB page, or Tweet at us. We look forward to hearing from you!
