When You are the Ushpiza: Inviting Your Authentic Self Into The Sukkah

Come, let us enter.
For in this place, any one of us can be.
Though the Awesome Days have ended.
Crown us with Keter
Back to the Source like roots of a tree.

Let us move beyond prostration
Our People’s great lamenting cry.
Find the one who found us in the desert.
And crowned us with the promise of freer lives.
 
Again.
Prepare our bodies as offerings.
Again.
Pluck out our souls from the sand.
Again.
Remake our hearts as maps.
And by sheltering each of us.
Anoint us to our highest selves.
That we may finally become who we are meant to be and at long last, enter the land.

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
