12:00–1:30 p.m. EST

For thousands of years before patriarchal monotheism took hold, our ancestors worshipped the Divine Feminine. In this immersion, we will take a deep dive into the legacy of the Hebrew goddess, from her ancient biblical and Near Eastern roots to her demise at the hands of our prophets and scribes, from her reemergence in mystical Judaism to her manifestations in Judaism today. Discover where her secrets are hidden and reclaim her for your own, for the earth, and for the generations to come. We will engage in thoughtful reflection and inspired creative writing with guided writing prompts. Join gynocentric Torah scholar, creative writing professor, and student rabbi Sivan Rotholz as we harvest the bounty of the Divine Feminine in Jewish tradition. No previous creative writing experience or knowledge of the goddess required.

Sivan Rotholz is a professor of gynocentric Torah and creative writing. She has taught at Brooklyn College, Tel Aviv University, Columbia/Barnard Hillel, Moishe House, and elsewhere, and has shared her Torah in synagogues and living rooms across the globe. Her writing has appeared in the Jewish Journal, 929, and Ritualwell, among other publications. She is the Education Director for Achayot – Jewish Women Writers, and is pursuing rabbinic ordination from Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion.


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