PHS Community Haggadah Companion
In an effort to re-weave our stories together after a year of separation, we are creating a PHS Community Seder Companion! Our goal is to capture a multitude of voices, reflections, and perspectives in our community on this holiday of redemption, a year after individual and collective trauma and challenge. These do not have to be d'var Torahs, and could include art, photos, or stories from your year. (More info and prompts here). We will send everyone a PDF copy of the final version ahead of Seder, on March 25.
Email your response in a google doc or word document to Faithbrighamleener@gmail.com.
Dear PHS –
When Jon and I joined this amazing community a year and a half ago, one of the things were most excited to do was to get to know you – as individuals, families, community members, and friends. It's been painful this year to remain so separate from one another, especially while everyone is undergoing so many transitions, challenges, and milestones. I know we are not alone in feeling this.
In an effort to acknowledge this reality and begin to re-weave our stories together, we are creating a PHS Community Haggadah Companion. Our goal is to capture a multitude of voices, reflections, and perspectives in our community on this holiday of redemption, a year after individual and collective trauma and challenge. We hope that by putting this supplement together folks will have a chance to reflect on the past year and reconnect with each other, even if we're still not able to fully gather together.
We will send everyone a printable PDF copy of the final version ahead of Seder, on Thursday, March 25.
With gratitude and looking forward to hearing your stories and sharing a bit of our own,
Faith and R' Jon Leener
HOW TO SUBMIT: Fill out this form with directions included
DEADLINE: All submissions due by March 21 5pm EST
- You do not need to write a d'var Torah or a long essay – you can use one of the prompts provided (strictly, or as a jumping off point) or just offer an open ended reflection that feels poignant to you as we enter Passover. You can spend a few days writing, or just jot down a quick 300 word reflection. Length is not important – it's much more important that you are included!
- Feel free to be creative with the form of your submissions. Photos, poems, art are welcome as well. Please just share 1-3 sentences about your intention in including your submission.
- We really hope to incorporate *children's* perspectives and drawings. Check in with your kids and see if they would like to be included. Toddler "drawings" welcome!
