Jewish Peoplehood, or Jewish identity, is transmitted dor l’dor, from generation to generation, through teachings and ritual. Yet many of us come from families that either turned away from Jewish practice, or rotely observed ritual without connecting with its deeper meaning. This turning away had many causes (the need for safety through assimilation, anti-Semitic trauma, yearning to explore non-traditional ideas). The Exodus, the central story of Judaism, tells of the journey from exile to re-membering our connection as a people with the Divine. In our time, many of us have made this journey in reclaiming our own Jewish identity. Together we will explore and share our personal and familial experiences of exile, and re-membering, reflect on the psychological and spiritual meaning of this journey, and consider how this understanding may provide a pathway for Jews who are currently alienated from or conflicted about their Jewish identity.
