Elul Unbound

Judaism Unbound is experimenting with offering a variety of experiences to try out during Elul. They created special weekly mini-podcasts, daily emails, live web gatherings, and more.

Live Daily Selichot

Daily Selichot services led by Justin Sundell-Thomas of Windy Meadow Homestead. In the Sephardic tradition, Selichot (prayers of repentance) are recited throughout the month of Elul and the days leading up to Yom Kippur. These services combine traditional Sephardic piyutim (liturgical poems/songs) with contemporary poetry, songs, and chants.

Honey from the Rock

Led by Dori Midnight on Wednesday September 9th 8:00-9:30 pm. Inspired by Indulkos, sweetening rituals from Sephardic tradition of the Ottoman Empire/Balkans, we will learn about creating our own honey rituals at home.

Weaving the Strands

Led by Nishmat Shoom community member Dane Kuttler on Sunday, September 13th 12:30-5:00pm. This is a challah-baking and Elul-learning workshop. You can register for the baking track, the learning track, or both!

Queer Mikveh Project

Wednesday September 16th 5:00-6:30pm: Join our friend Rebekah Erev for a Mikveh experience that is welcoming for all people with all bodies. ASL interpretation will be provided. All donations go to the Black Mycelium Project.
