Created by Rebekah Erev and Nomy Lamm, two Olympia-based artists and kohanot / Hebrew priestesses, with contributions from thirteen Jewish clergy and mystics who offer writings and rituals for engaging with each month of the Jewish calendar.
This year’s theme, “Verdant Dreams,” calls forth imagery of our lush, green planet. 5782 marks a shmita year (occuring once every seven years) in the Hebrew calendar, in which Jewish practice sets forth agrarian principles for letting fields lay fallow to rest and renew. Shmita literally means “release,” and in Biblical times included the forgiving of debts. Nomy and Rebekah see this cycle as an opportunity to question economic systems that stratify wealth and privatize ownership of land. Shmita year creates opportunities to observe how animals, plants and mycelium interact with each other, in order to better befriend the more-than-human world.
