Lekhi Lakh

Four people in profile walking with the sunset behind them

Lekhi lakh to a land that I will show you
Lekh li-kha to a place you do not know
Lekhi lakh on your journey I will bless you
And you shall be a blessing, you shall be a blessing
You shall be a blessing lekhi lakh

Lekhi lakh and I shall make your name great
Lekh li-kha and all shall praise your name
Lekhi lakh to the place that I will show you
Li-simkhat hayyim, li-simkhat hayyim
Li-simkhat hayyim lechi lach.

And you shall be a blessing, you shall be a blessing
You shall be a blessing lekhi lakh.

“Lekhi lakh to a place that I will show you/Lekh lekha to a land you do not know…” Based on God’s words to Abraham to seek his destiny (Genesis 12:1–2).

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
