In Ahavat Torah's Shabbat class, April 20th, 9 am, offered by Joy Krauthammer on the Kabbalistic understanding of Sefirat HaOmer-- through a joyous poetic dance entitled, "I Am A Holy Vessel", Joy expresses her spiritual life through the lens of Sephirot / Divine Emanations of the Holy One (which as human beings created B'Tzelem Elokim / in G*d's image), we embody. 

Joy hopes that her shared expression inspires others to review thoughtfully in any creative ARTS form, their own character traits-- emotions and actions in ways of involvement with G*d, community and self.
Dance, drum, write, paint, play, photograph, sculpt, and sing your soul.
