12-1:30 p.m. Eastern

Are you recently separated or have you (or a loved one) gone through a divorce? This immersion provides support for those who have gone through–or are going through–this major life transition and for the family, friends, clergy and community members who want to support them.

Jewish rituals give us the context to share joy, sadness, awe and fear throughout one’s life with the community at large. But in the case of divorce, there is no Jewish context to call for support or to share the complexity of feelings that accompany this transition

Join this six-part class to explore both the ancient and modern conversations on this pressing topic that impacts so many of us. Using ancient texts, stories, reflective activities and ritual weaving, we will imagine a Jewish community that knows how to show up for people going through this chapter of their lives.

We can begin writing a new chapter, without shame, about family, community and divorce. Together, we can imagine what kind of support you need and what your Jewish family looks like.

All sessions will be recorded and sent to participants. We encourage live attendance for you to get the most out of the experience.


Headshot of rabbi Ezra WeinbergRabbi Ezra Weinberg is a shaliach tzibur, officiant and Jewish educator dedicated to creating connection and community. He is a native Philadelphian and holds a master’s degree in conflict transformation. Reb Ezra officiates weddings and bnai mitzvot, teaches a university course called, “One G-d, Three Paths,” alongside a priest and imam. He currently works with individuals and families within the Jewish community, and founded ReVoice, a network of resources for Jewish going through divorce. “The work that I do is inspired by my own divorce, as well as my experience as a child of high conflict divorce. A big part of my mission is to offer support in Jewish contexts when divorce radically changes a family’s path. However, I also want to change the conversation around divorce within the Jewish community today, so that it is no longer taboo to get divorced or talk about divorce.”
