Beauty and Holiness

I’m guest blogging this week for two of my favorite Jewish homes, and I invite you to visit them:

  1. On Bayit Builders Blog you’ll find Magnifying Beauty: Tiferet and #ColorTheOmer which contains photographs and video artist statements of my four students’ work, as well as a link to my Artist Statement. Bayit’s Builders Blog is a go-to portal for Jewish ritual and spiritual innovation, design thought, and practical tools for Jewish life. If you’d like to contribute to the blog, check out the guidelines for posts and sign up to follow us on email.
  2. On Congregation B’nai Torah’s website you’ll find Parashat Kedoshim: Be Holy, Or Else! At the end of this d’var torah, which examines Leviticus 20:22 in depth, you’ll find information about joining B’nai Torah’s Green Team and getting involved in JCAN-GA.

I’m fortunate to be a member of many holy communities—including Bayit, Congregation B’nai Torah, JCAN-GA and The Weber Schooland to be lifted up by friends and colleagues. As I prepare to welcome the Sabbath Queen into our home, I’m counting my blessings and reciting blessings of gratitude.
