Write On! Creative Experiential Writing for All Ages

Aliya Cheskis-Cotel

Arts & Performance, Interactive, Text & Thought

Travel through the holiday cycle with creative writing to experience history with selected exercises from the presenter's book. Write Ha Lachma Anya (the traditional start to the Passover seder, which means "this is the bread of affliction") from the perspective of a foodless child. Write a Tu B'Shevat (new year for trees) piece as if you were a tree about to be destroyed. Write a report of a resistance fighter in the Maccabee caves. Renew creative learning energy for all ages, making Jewish history come alive!
