The Nine Month Sukkah

The sukkah is a powerful metaphor for pregnancy. From the image of welcoming new guests at the fall festival of Sukkot to God's "sukkat sh'lomecha" (shelter of peace), the Sukkah presents us with a framework for nine moths of spiritual preparation for for birth. Barbara will present her take on bringing Jewish spirituality into the sukkah of pregnancy with new rituals and meditations. The session is aimed at parents-to-be, anyone wanting to someday be a parent, and maybe even some grandparents (or grandparent wannabes).
