Congregation Beth Sholom invites you to experience Jewish tradition in a creative, new way with their “Explore” series.
This workshop event, “Deathbed Stories: A Ritual of Transgenerational Communication,” invites participants to share and discuss family legacy through the lens of heirloom objects. Upon entering the Gronowski Chapel, you will place your heirloom object – something you have received or that you would hand down, anywhere in the room. The resulting heirloom object arrangement will then unfold into a living network of bodies, present and absent, still and moving, sounding and silent. Taking off from the story of Jacob’s death, the ritual will open a portal to the collision of past and future and turn physical heirlooms into present-day encounters with Jewish spiritual inheritance.
