An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until November 30, 2023
Take time to pause and pen with the Ritualwell community. Each week, same day, same time.
We’re all holding many emotions and concerns that change day by day, hour by hour. Poetry, prayer and creative expression can bring comfort and provide us with support. Together we will say the Mi Sheberach for healing and Kaddish for the fallen, and pray for the captives.
Bring pen and paper– each week a different poet/liturgist will lead us in an expressive prompt. Pour out your feelings in words, images, doodles or whatever works best for you. We look forward to seeing you. Invite a friend or loved one who might appreciate this comforting space.
Upcoming Gathering: 12/7/2023

Talia is a playwright, poet, visual artist, and student in the ordination program at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. She founded Briya in 2021, where she facilitates creative writing workshops with a Jewish frame. Based in New York City, Talia is a graduate of Barnard College and Cardozo Law School. A lifelong learner with many creative projects, her work explores: the nexus of creativity and spirituality, feminist mythology and theology, unearthing the ancient. Talia loves to write, cook, lead rituals, read fairy tales, and think about the stories we tell and retell – how we use them to pass on pain and joy, and how we can use them to build justice and peace.
