When the Jerusalem Temple was destroyed, the Jewish community reinvented and reinvigorated religious life with new forms of worship and prayer. Nearly two thousand years later, we find ourselves yet again at a crossroad: What can we do today to reinvigorate our prayer lives? How do we maintain our commitment to traditional prayer while finding ways to enhance our spiritual lives? Join us for a weekend with Artist-in-Residence, Eliana Light, as we explore these questions and more. The weekend’s activities include a singing circle, Shabbat services and dinner, a Shabbat morning lunch and learn, and more.
ELIANA LIGHT Raised in Memphis, TN on soul music and synagogue life, Eliana’s passion for Jewish life and learning shines through all her work. Eliana’s goal is to help individuals discover themselves within the depth and richness of Jewish life, and to take ownership of their Judaism. She has released two albums of original Jewish music. She is the author of Hebrew in Harmony, a curriculum published by Behrman House that teaches prayer and Hebrew through music. In 2017, Eliana founded the G!D Project, an educational initiative focused on accessible, meaningful conversations about G!D and spirituality through ritual, text, and creativity. Eliana graduated from the Jewish Theological Seminary with a Masters in Experiential Jewish Education in 2016 and is based in Durham, NC.
This program is made possible through the generosity of the Dollye and I. Wolford Berman Educational Initiative Grant.
