Yom HaShoah Prayer

as the world grips 

at our necks

and life draws so near to us
that our deaths are 
mere inches 
from our faces

the voice of g-d moves from above to below

“for your sake did i create the whole world

and for the sake of those unlike you

did i scatter Myself into far-flung tiny pieces in the narrow, hidden, hard-to-reach places of the lonely universe”

the holy is broken
the broken is holy
every body lives in the broken’s search for the holy in all of creation

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
