Today marks a shift in our country as a new administration assumes power. But the day should not only mark a shift in leadership. Turning to Jewish wisdom, we can use this transition to mark a change within us and reflect on who we are, who we want to be, and how we can get there.
To mark this day, we invite you to take part in a short DIY hand washing activity based on the ritual of mikvah. We hope this brief ritual helps you observe this shift in our country as we step into what is next on our journey.
P.S. BIG shoutout to Temple Micah’s Storefront Project for dreaming up this activity and Asiyah for your collaboration on this ritual.
