Feedback form is now closed.
This session will examine the idea that the world was created through speech - and the core Biblical, Rabbinic, and Hassdic texts around speech. Is it possible that the very commonplace act of speech can build worlds, as well as destroy worlds? And how can I be aware of the effects my speech is having on the world? All texts are provided in translation, and this session is open to all levels of experience with Jewish texts.
