Tent of Mourning/Bay Area Ta’anit Esther Actifest

March 21 @ 5:30 am 9:30 pm

Co-sponsored by AriYael Jewish Healing Center, The Shalom Center is erecting a Tent of Mourning for all whose hearts are open and tender enough to grieve both Palestinian and Israeli lives lost since and beyond October 7th. In collaboration with over a dozen local and national partners, and inspired by Queen Esther’s ritualized grief in the Purim story, we are curating a full day of sessions, teachings, and self-directed ritual to support attendees in deepening and expanding their grief. With a mix of traditional and creative mourning practices, we are opening to the possibility that, through our shared mourning, new paths towards peace might shake loose for us as individuals and more broadly.
