The rabbis teach “Prayer without kavanah (intention) is like a body without a soul.”

Prepare your spirit for the High Holiday season and enrich its rituals with personal meaning through this intention-setting writing workshop. Over two sessions, writing instructor Janet Ruth Falon — author of In the Spirit of the Holidays and The Jewish Journaling Book — will help you examine your own connection to the holidays and open your heart. No writing experience or expertise is necessary!
