Dear Kehilla Community,
The families in the 2018 Bar/Bat Mitzvah Cohort recently had a workshop called Jewish Gateways into the Spirit with Rabbi Burt, Helen Stoltzfus, and Susan Schulman. One of the activities was to create a group poem inspired by a story about the Ba’al Shem Tov. We thought the results were beautiful and wanted to share the finished poems with the Kehilla Community!
