I invite you to delve into the layers of meaning in your name through my exploratory workshops.
I lead workshops for:
- Individuals and families
- B’not/B’nai mitzvah
- Synagogue groups- adult, youth and intergenerational
- Senior residences and community centers
- Camps and afterschool programs
- Businesses and nonprofit organizations
Name Pasuk Workshops
Intergenerational Workshop for B’nai Mitzvah and parent/grandparent: This workshop is a meaningful addition to the curriculum for the year of preparation for becoming b’nai mitzvah and can be held with youth alone, or in an intergenerational setting with their parents or other significant adult in their life. It is also very relevant for the confirmation year, or adult b’nai mitzvah.
Art Midrash Workshops
Art midrash workshops give students the opportunity to engage their artistic senses in the process of creating a visual, musical or written midrash connecting their name and their pasuk to themselves. Create visual midrash and write your own story about discovering the deeper meaning and soul connection to one’s name.
For larger groups of adults, I offer a 45 to 90 minute presentations, depending on your community’s needs, with a slideshow of my artwork, the history of the name pasuk, and significance of personal and biblical names.
