prayer flags

P1020191_1A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I led an art activity during a second night seder for East Side Jews. I have finally had a chance to assemble the results.

I asked everyone to think about the journey from Passover to Shavuot (the 49 days we’re in now) as a time of deep reflection and personal enrichment. Using prayer as a way to open your heart and ask for help, I encouraged everyone to find the words or pictures to express a deep wish for either themselves or the world. I created 2 sheets with Jewish and Passover imagery that everyone could use if they needed visual support for their ideas. Some collaged the images together with words and others drew directly from their imaginations.

There was so much activity during the seder that I didn’t have a chance to really sit down and look at the individual prayers. When I reviewed everything a few days later, I was touched by the simplicity and purity of the prayers. I have discovered prayer only recently and have found it more powerful than meditation as a way to humble my heart.

Passover.01

 

Last night, I participated in a Passover seder with a local Jewish group called East Side Jews. I designed their Haggadah cover and led an art activity during the seder. It was fun and chaotic – another unusual evening! I am beginning to understand that no two seders are ever the same.
