Being With . . .
An Introduction to Practices  for Turning Towards Each Other in Polarizing Times

Much of the polarization we are experiencing within the wider Jewish landscape is–at least in part–an expression of the inherited pain that we carry and the continually emerging grief, horror and confusion. This pain was catalyzed by Hamas’ brutal attack on Israelis on October 7th and is being kept aflame by the ongoing excruciating violence against Palestinians in Gaza as well as the rising threats against Jews worldwide. 

In a time like this, when there is so much trauma surfacing collectively and interwoven with what we already carry, it can be extremely challenging to feel for our center and find an authentic aligned response to this moment. When we unconsciously act from our emotions, we narrow our way of being in the world.

Join Elizabeth Cohen, McKenzie Wren and Rebekka Goldsmith as we create space designed to help us be together in this difficult time.  Working with mindful restorative and healing practices, active and compassionate listening, sound and breath, middot (jewish qualities for living life), and spiritual teachings as tools for sharing our stories, experiences, and feelings,  we work to stay in connection across difference.
