People of the Continual Going Forth: A Prayer for Action to Benefit the Rohingya

We are not a People that stays behind.
We have been a People gasping in our father’s idol shop.
And a People that was enslaved, and then freed.
But we have never stayed behind.
Our task is a rebuke that is holy.
Arguing with self.
Arguing with G-d.
A holy rebuke that changes a life mired in selfishness, complicity and pain.
We do not ever, ever stay behind.
We choose to contend with the wilderness and resist.
For, we are the People of the continual going forth.

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
