Our initial projects include publishing, ritual resources, and a blog focusing on innovation that works. There are other projects in the blueprints phase, so stay tuned for updates on those! Meanwhile, here’s a bit more about each of the three projects with which we’re beginning our work:
Our first print publication, due in 2018, will be a volume for mourners entitled Beside Still Waters: A Journey of Comfort and Renewal, published jointly by Bayit and Ben Yehuda Press. The book contains materials for before death as well as for the stages of mourning, times of remembrance, and more. (Read all about it, including list of contributors.)
Stay tuned for information on our next publishing projects, as well as for official release date for Beside Still Waters (anticipated in early 2018.)
In addition to print publications, we’re also releasing occasional digital materials designed to help people build the Jewish lives that they yearn for. Our first online release is a digital haggadah for Tu BiShvat, the New Year of the Trees.
Doorways: Lifecycle Transitions.
We’re working on Doorways, a new website of resources for lifecycles: not only the classical milestones of birth / marriage / death, but also milestones such as a child moving out of the house, or retirement, or miscarriage. These resources will be curated by an expert editorial team, easily navigable, and designed to meet the needs of people where they are.
Our Builders’ Blog will feature posts about Jewish innovation that works. We’ll showcase a variety of different voices, sharing insights into what people are building now toward the Jewish future of their dreams.
