Creating Our Own Candlelighting Ritual @ Rabbinic Students Retreat

  • Camp Ramah Ojai, CA (map)

Lighting Shabbat candles has been a ritual honored by millions of women for millennia. What is the origin of this sacred tradition, and how are the various ways it has been practiced for centuries? How can we honor those rituals of our ancestors, and add more meaning to our own practice today?

Join Dr Katja Vehlow and Rishe Groner to explore our own identities around ritual, the history of candlelighting in Rabbinic and Jewish tradition, and to create our own personal ritual for the Friday evening service at this retreat.
