Entering Shabbat

As we enter this sacred time of Shabbat,
May Adonai help us put aside
Our stresses of daily life
And absorb the calm of this holy moment.
As Shabbat begins,
May Adonai revive our ability to feel
The infinite potential this ceasing affords us
To regather our scattered selves.
In the hallowed space Shabbat creates,
May Adonai refresh our connections
To our loved ones and community
Expanding the threads which bind us together.

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
