Dinah and Shekhinah

Woman praying with hands together

My womb is not the well
That draws out the water 
That gives you life.

And I am not the daughter who fills your pitcher.

I refuse to be what I do for you.
And I refuse to be the shadow of what you do to me.

I am larger than all the vessels you try to contain me in.
And though my face is hidden
I am the Glory. 

Greater than glances, 
Bigger than bodies.

More revealing than sight.

Join Rabbi Vivie Mayer and Ritualwell for an online course on forgiveness in preparation for Yom Kippur. In three sessions during the month of Elul, we will study, connect, and create as we immerse in the topic of forgiveness. 

Wednesdays, 12pm–1:15pm EST, August 8, 15, 22
