Do you read your weekly star signs, or scoff at the very idea? Do you have a secret yearning for a moment to mark Winter Solstice, or do you think that pagan thing has nothing to do with Judaism? Whatever your thoughts, you will find Jewish ancestors who support you wholeheartedly! In this three part course, we will approach the upcoming Winter Solstice with a fresh perspective, as we learn about the Cairo Genizah's treasury of crop predictions, the Talmudic tussle over astrology, water-switching solstice rituals practiced across the medieval Jewish diaspora.
This event is part of Cottage in the Woods, a Winter's journey through Jewish folk customs and ritual arts, with Yelala and Wellspring. Supported places are very limited - please only select these if you are genuinely in need. Abundant Rates help us to subsidise the presence of those most in need, thank you!
