Poetry Shabbat: Painting Prayers
A Lyrical Dance through Liturgy

Our Siddur (prayerbook) is a pastiche of poems, thoughts, philosophies, and imagery. Poetry Shabbat invites participants into the siddur through spiritual, intellectual and emotional prompts that engages participants into new forms of prayer. Our outcomes will include visual, verbal and written poetic offerings for Open Temple’s February 21 Shabbat Take Me Higher.
