We Returned to Sinai (Shavuot Retreat at Isabella Freedman)
Over Shavuot 2017, members of the TBE family joined Rabbi David at the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center for the ritual immersion of Merissa Ferrar in Lake Miriam, lovingly enfolding her into the Jewish people. We lifted a tallit over her head and escorted her to her first aliyah over Shavuot, the festival of receiving Torah anew. Together we enjoyed days of learning, singing, dancing, yoga, organic foods, feminist radical Torah, the first harvest and more. We look forward to returning to Sinai (Shavuot) in 2018.
