Jewish Herbalism & the Life Cycle
- From 18 US dollarsFrom $18
- Virtual Session
In this virtual 90-minute workshop, we will learn about how Jews have woven herbs into their rituals and ceremonies to welcome life, to beautify holidays and joyful occasions, to honor the dead, or to support grieving. First, we will explore Jewish herbal rituals across the diaspora to welcome babies into the world, to protect both the baby and the parent who has given birth, and to welcome in a new time or transition. In addition, we will also focus on herbs connected in Jewish tradition to death, on folk rituals and practices for honoring and remembering the dead, and on Jewish herbalism to support healthy grieving as well as related plant traditions that deal with remembrance or sorrow.
