A Taste of Maggid-Craft: Becoming an Inspirational Storyteller and Teacher
Sponsor Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center
Type of Event Education
Description When the Jewish people needed an infusion of new life, a great maggid, the Baal Shem Tov, blazed a path to spiritual renewal and inspired others to become maggidim and continue his holy work. Today, when many Jews hunger for spirituality, the role of the maggid (Jewish inspirational speaker and storyteller) is being revived. Learn from a master maggid how to open yourself to divine inspiration, pour out your joy and inspire others. Develop skills in storytelling and presenting and learn how to mine the wisdom hidden in traditional texts. The holy trail-blazers of this generation—Rabbis Shlomo Carlebach and Zalman Schachter-Shalomi—are our models. We will practice with a study partner and present our stories and teachings to the trees in the forest, our friends in class and the whole retreat group. This is your chance to begin to fulfill your soul’s dream, to share your inspiration with others and to spread God’s light.
