A new liturgy for Shavuot: Why am I a Jew? Get involved

“Becoming (ever more) Jewish – Why I identify as a Jew – What Judaism means to me?”

– a project for developing a new, creative liturgy for Shavuot.

In one sense, we are all becoming Jewish day by day and year by year, through our contributions to the tribe, to our local community and to mankind in general.

Hava Fleming (York Liberal Jewish Community) appeals for written contributions to a creative celebration of “Becoming Jewish” for use at the festival of Shavuot (deadline for submissions to her: 1st May 2018).

Please think about sharing any heart-felt words you may have read or written, a song, piece of music or a visual image, which could enhance the spirit of the festival, when we traditionally stand (again) at Mt Sinai and affirm Ruth’s words. It does not matter if you think your idea is obvious; just send it in anyway, as a word doc, pdf, something scanned from a book, or a web or Youtube link. A few words about what your quoted piece means to you is also entirely appropriate and welcome, but not essential.

All contributions and comments gratefully received at this email address: havaflemingww2@gmail.com
