Standing at Sinai with George and Regis

Regis Korchinski-Paquet

George Floyd
may your memories be a blessing
may we live now to bless your memories 
“we were all at Sinai”
but too many of you 
fixed your
eyes upon 
The Mountain
so desperately that 
you could
not dare imagine
at this moment uncontrollably 
can you 
look up
the thunder 
can you embrace
the unwritten
the unfinished rhyme
of g-d’s perfect storm
of your unseen ancestors
raining down
breaking apart the floodgates of heaven?
torah is a teardrop 
torah is a wave
torah is change
we are change

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
