Preparing for Shmita: A Mindful Elul Workshop
Hosted By: The Tasman Center for Jewish Creativity
Join The Tasman Center for Jewish Creativity and Hazon for a kick off workshop in preparation for the Jewish New Year. Every year, at the end of the summer, we have a special time in the Jewish calendar in the month of Elul to prepare for Rosh Hashanah.
This is a time to reflect on the year we’ve been through and set intentions for the year ahead. This coming year in the Jewish calendar is a Shmita year, which comes every seven years, as a chance for fields to lie fallow for rest and renewal in the ancient agricultural system in the land of Israel. In our modern lives, we have an opportunity to observe the Shmita cycle symbolically – as a mindful, creative, reflective spiritual practice.
