Sibling Blessing

Hinei ma tov umanaim
Shevet akhim gam yakhad
Behold how good it is, for these siblings to dwell together.
May you watch over each other, just as Miriam watched over Moses from the reeds of the Nile.
May you work together with your unique talents, just as Moses and Aaron together fought the injustices of slavery.
May you take care of each other when you are sick, just as Moses prayed for Miriam when she was sick.
Our tradition teaches, “it is not good for people to be alone.” May you never feel alone for you will always have each other.
Hinei ma tov umanaim
Shevet akhim gam yakhad

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
