Turn It and Turn It Again

There is something sacred
When we find ourselves upside down.

Only there do we discover that each of our movements is part of a larger circle,
Whose center leads us to our own inner knowing.
And yes, too, the ultimate meaning of 
“Turn it and turn it again.”
Which does not merely apply to the Law
But to every last life on earth.
For those who choose human beings, try choosing Torah scrolls. 
For those who choose Torah scrolls, try choosing human beings.
For those who choose humanity, try choosing divinity.
For those who choose divinity, try choosing humanity.
Turn, turn and return. 
Come full circle in law and life.

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
