Rise and Rebuild: Tending our Individual and Collective Grief

Led by Dor & Ophir Haberer
June 22, 29, July 6, 13 7:00pm–8:30pm ET
$144 for four sessions
Every summer, the Jewish people are offered three weeks of mourning that commences with the 17th of Tammuz and is sealed with Tisha B’Av. This moment in time also coincides with the climactic heat of the summer, where the fields turn yellow and the crops kiss death. In this series, we will use this time to explore all the ways grief manifests in our individual and collective lives. We will lean on this powerful tradition to reflect on what destruction and violation we have experienced and support one another in moving through some of these more difficult emotions. Activities will include guided meditations, embodied release practices, journaling exercises, song sharing, storytelling, and collective ritual. Join us to unearth the longings underneath the grief and vision together what it means for us to rebuild the temple in these diasporic times.
This immersion is open to all!


Although sessions will be recorded and sent to you afterward, live participation in the session is recommended.
