An interfaith collaboration between Congregation B'nai Israel, First Churches, Northampton, and Art & Soul
@ First Churches, 11 Center Street, Northampton, MA*
What happens at the intersection of Word and Creativity? This series is a thoughtful invitation to explore the Psalms--poetry, really-- based on Rabbi Edward Feld’s book Joy, Despair and Hope – Reading Psalms through personal reflection and creative expression utilizing the many materials Susannah has available at The Nest space. You need not have any religious affiliation nor any previous experience making art to attend.
Rabbi Feld will be at the September 22nd session to answer questions that have arisen in the process and engage with the participants and their work.
September 8, 1:00-3:00 Psalm of Joy
September 15, 1:00-3:00 Psalm of Despair
September 22, 1:00-3:00 Psalm of Joy
(attend one, two or all three sessions
Fee for the class is on a sliding scale from $20 - $30 per class. $60 - $75 for all three classes. Advance registration is required by September 1.
*Please note: We plan to hold this series in The Nest space at First Churches, which is located on the second floor with no elevator access. If you would like to attend and have mobility issues, please let us know and we will gladly move to a more accessible area in the church.
