Ever wanted to craft or lead a ritual of your own? Join us to learn to make a safely-held, informed and inspired, Jewishly-rooted ritual of your own! This course will include learnings about what rituals our ancestors have made in the past, what present-day Jewish ritual-innovators are up to, and techniques to devise a ritual of your own. As part of the course, you will also be invited to create and facilitate a ritual of your own, as well as receive feedback from the Kohanot and your fellow ritual-makers. This course will require some (fun!) work outside of class time.
