Navigating the Liminal Place: A Play based on the Taharah liturgy

  • Or Shalom Jewish Community 625 Brotherhood Way San Francisco, CA, 94132 United States (map)

How does liturgy "work"? Especially so in the Taharah room---where the body of the deceased is washed in an ancient Jewish ritual showing respect for the dead. Rabbi Me'irah has adapted the liturgy spoken by the team that performs the taharah into a play---the parts to be read by the participants who attend this workshop. Open to the public, free of charge. Come play an ancestor, God, a prophet, a sage, an angel, a demon. You will experience the power of how the liturgy helps a community "navigate" the liminal space between life and death.
