Blessing for Wearing a Mask and Other Obligations

Breath of Life
We welcome our obligations to the community
To do our best
To protect them
By keeping our distance and
By wearing our masks.
It is an honor to be able to be of such service
With so little effort. 

And, Ruakh HaOlam,
We welcome our obligations to ourselves
To do our best
To stay healthy 
By washing our hands and
By getting our flu shots. 
It is a relief to be able to help ourselves
With so little effort. 
We give thanks for these holy obligations.  
We are blessed by them.

Learning to Say "We": Writing Identity

In this immersion, we will reflect and expand on our personal experiences of identity, using writing exercises and in-depth discussions to think about, challenge, discover, explore, and experiment with different ways to identify ourselves, to consider how those ways connect us to and separate us from others, and how they represent and misrepresent aspects of who we are.

Four sessions, starting June 15th
