$180 for five sessions

Our bodies, minds and spirits have been shaped by what’s happened to us and the stories we tell about ourselves. We will explore how trauma theory and the tools of Jewish ritual can help us to grieve and process hurts we’ve experienced, build resilience and power for surviving and thriving in oppressive conditions and experience joy, growth and celebration. We will explore how to acknowledge trauma in public ritual spaces safely, responsibly and accessibly. You will have the opportunity to design your own ritual(s) in a supportive and inclusive space. You will come away with the knowledge and practical tools to build healing rituals for yourself and your communities.

Rabbi Jessica Rosenberg is a Reconstructionist rabbi born, raised and based in Philadelphia and its surrounding suburbs. She became a rabbi in order to learn our people’s diverse and nuanced histories, and create spaces, ritual and organizing that help transform our relationship to past, present and future.
