Queer Aliyah Blessing

this is a blessing
for neither or
well actually
and sometimes

for avraham
bat sarah

sarah ben avraham

for all the houses with
unmarked doors
that peer through windows and mirrors
and there
feel G-d’s breeze
their/Their ease

O to be endless ones
breathing into the world
The infinite and
Manifold One!

I am Av Rah
of Abraham and Sarah
outside the lines


but i’ve chosen my own names

We are Creation!

I am Magic


Blessed are my names who are remaking my namesakes and calling each and every one of me, They/Them/Their, Us, G-d – and We! – to the reading of Torah.

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
