  • Illuminate the Omer: A Creative Journey Through The Divine Attributes

    Thu Mar 25, 2021 - Sun May 16, 2021 *Please note this is an asynchronous course meaning the the class does not meet at a set day/time each week. Participants will receive weekly teachings and prompts and can participate at anytime.

    Springtime in the Jewish calendar takes us on a seven week journey from Passover to Shavuot. A mystical tradition assigns a special attribute (one of the sephirot or divine traits) to each of the seven weeks as an opportunity for spiritual reflection and personal development.

    Join The Tasman Center for Jewish Creativity for a 7-week “art beit midrash” or creative study and exploration. Each week we’ll provide a teaching/guided meditation (video and audio recording) and reflection prompts on the weekly theme or attribute.

    Rabbi Sarah will offer a special live Zoom event Zoom on March 25th at 8pm EASTERN to launch the series, offer blessings and intentions for Passover and the Omer, and to answer questions. The video recording will be shared with all participants via email as well as in the private Facebook group.
