With FTJC student clergy intern Eliana Kissner. This class explores Jewish liturgy and practices relating to labor and childbirth. We will look at how various communities used poetry and prayer in both Hebrew and vernacular, amulets, incantations, and other religiously oriented practices to ease the birthing process and foster a sense of safety and protection for those experiencing it. We will also look at if and how these prayers and practices can be applied in the present day. This class is open to all who are interested. Eliana Kissner is a senior in the H.L. Miller Cantorial School at JTS. Pre-Registration requested at
