Hodu Ladonai Ki Tov, Ki L’olam Hasdo
Give thanks to God for God is good;
God’s lovingkindness is everlasting.
We pray that all women in this country, all daughters of immigrants, all descendents of slaves know in this moment that they too can become Vice President of the United States or whatever they dream to be.
May we celebrate this moment even as we never tire of the work of equality and justice.
May the beauty and diversity of God’s creation be manifest in every corner of this country, and let us say Amen!

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
