Sin Offering

I stand before You this day

G-d of Old,

To offer my sins

As tribute to my humanity,

To offer my repentance

As tribute to my holiness.

Teach me to cast off these sins,

To make space for Your radiance and light,

To make space for my humanity and this holiness

To meet in the core of my being,

So that my soul may shine brighter.

So that the works of my hands

Will praise Your creation.

So that my life will be a blessing

In heaven and on earth.

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
