Scholar-in-Residence Weekend: Forever Letter Writing Workshop

Sunday, February 9, 2020 14 Shevat 5780

10:00 AM - 1:00 PMBeth El Temple, 2626 Albany Avenue, West Hartford, CT 06117

You don’t have to be a writer. You don’t have to love to write. You don’t even have to know to whom you will write. The only requirement: show up and be yourself with our Scholar-in-Residence Rabbi Elana Zaiman!

In this workshop, we will look at excerpts of letters from medieval and modern times as templates for the forever letters we will begin to write. We will talk about tone, content, and how to write to be heard. We will write to prompts to reflect on ourselves, the people we love, and our shared relationships. Write to your children, parents, grandchildren, grandparents, siblings, spouse, partner, friends. Feel free to bring a special notebook and pen or your laptop.

Coffee and a light breakfast will be served.

This Scholar-in-Residence weekend is being underwritten by the Leonard & Vicki Eisenfeld Endowment Fund and Amy E. Toyen Endowment Fund, named funds within The Endowment Fund of Beth El Temple.
