Art + Spirit Workshop: Entering into the Shiviti - August 1

Through the traditional Jewish art form known as the Shiviti, we will study, contemplate, and enter into artistic expression. Please bring the medium of your choice—visual and expressive arts, songwriting and composing, sculpture, glass, fabric arts, and more. A half-hour talk on the history, mystical practice, and examples of traditional and contemporary forms will be followed by Q&A, Shiviti gazing, time to create your own Shiviti art work, and debriefing. Rabbi Dr. Goldie Milgram is an artist, educator, author, and spiritual guide honored by the Covenant Foundation and National Jewish Book Council for her innovative programs, books, and resources. Her new book release is Wisdom from Reb Zalman: Embracing the Jewish Spirit (Reclaiming Judaism Press).
