WATERS OF JUSTICE

The last session of the Let Justice Well Up text study series on December 11 closed out the Jews of Color Sanctuary program 2022 calendar. Feedback from the series last January led to the development of a dynamic opportunity to study elements of our modern lives through Torah texts centered around water.

It is a rare gift to be in an affinity space of women of color. Our conversations reflected the incredible range of insight and experience. ללמד lilmod holds both learn and teach. Any teacher will tell you how much they learn much from students. So too, Judaism holds moments of teaching made more powerful as we learn from each other.

There are special opportunities lot brewing for 2023. I look forward to continuing the journey with you, both nationally and locally.

Rising Tide

Erica Riddick of Jews of Color Sanctuary will be a featured speaker of the Co-Creating Rituals Panel at the Rising Tide Open Waters Mikveh Network virtual 2022 Gathering on May 9 through 10. Rising Tides mission is to inspire, strengthen and support communities that embrace an open, inclusive and welcoming approach to ritual immersion as a way to mark life transitions, believing that providing for the spiritual needs of the entire spectrum of Jewish people will help create a more vibrant, welcoming, and inclusive community for everyone. The gathering is an opportunity for individuals and groups to come together to learn from and grow this movement.
