In this 90 minute workshop, we’ll travel the path of the High Holy Days together, from facing grief to making amends to finishing in joy. This will include teachings, discussion, chant and guided imagery, and writing exercises.

Drawing upon our communal repentance at the School of the Americas Watch Convergence.

Deborah Mayaan is a member of the Tucson chapter of JVP, and organized JVP members coming in for the School of the Americas Watch Encuentro on both sides of the border in Ambos Nogales in 2016. As part of that, she worked with other JVP members and the Rabbinic Council to develop a cross-border teshuvah prayer of repentance for our community’s part in border militarization. In leading this workshop, she draws upon many years of lay spiritual leadership, and also experiences from her work facilitating groups in writing workshops and in groups for support and transformation, including groups meeting online by videoconference.

In this season, when there is so much wrong being done by our Federal government, we gather as Jews, Immigration activists, and social justice activists to demand justice for immigrants and to sound the great shofar of freedom. Rather than take our sins to the river, we are taking the mighty stream of justice to a source of great sin – the regional headquarters of ICE in Center City Philadelphia.

Co-sponsoring organizations include: Tikkun Olam Chavurah, New Sanctuary Movement, Congregation Mishkan Shalom, Kol Tzedek West Philadelphia Synagogue, and Philadelphia Jewish Voice for Peace.

We’ll gather to demand:
An end to pulling children away from families
A country proud to be a home to refugees
An end to racist stereotyping of refugees and immigrants
An end to ICE
A just policy for paths to citizenship for undocumented residents

View the Sukkot cross-border hagaddah.

Situated just 60 miles from the US-Mexico border that divides the Tohono O’odham Nation, JVP-Tucson draws connections between US/Mexico/O’odham and Israel/Palestine resistance to border militarization through participating with local groups and sharing nationally.

We’ve shared perspectives with the wider JVP community through convening panels on cross-border issues at the 2015 and 2017 National Member Meetings, and coordinating JVPers from across the country coming in for the 2016 School of the Americas Watch Encuentro on both sides of the wall in Ambos Nogales.

Our innovative ritual has included the first binational bilingual seder on both sides of the wall in Ambos Nogales, that included phone access to the day’s counting of the omer https://jewishvoiceforpeace.org/reflections-first-binational-bilingual-seder/

And the ritual we are livestreaming this year draws on last year’s cross-border Sukkot celebration in Ajo (near the area of the most active migrant corridors and subsequent deaths in the desert) attended by humanitarian aid workers and members of the small local Jewish community.
