Take time to pause and pen with the Ritualwell community on Thursday, October 26 at 12-12:30 p.m.
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–Rabbi Annie Lewis 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.
