Kohenet Shabbat

Join us for monthly Shabbat with the Bay Area Kohenet Jewish community and friends. We will gather, pray, connect, and celebrate Shabbat together through the transformative power of ritual and sacred space.

Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute, co-founded by Rav Kohanot Taya Mâ Shere and Rabbi Jill Hammer, is a community and movement creating and remembering earth-based, embodied, feminist forms of Judaism. Kohenet honors the diversity of ways that divinity appears to us in the world, through the elements, our ancestors, sacred texts, and our own intuition.

No previous experience with Jewish practice necessary. Services are open to all who are called and are held by rotating Kohenet leadership. This week’s Shabbat will be led by Kohenet Yael Schonzeit with guest movement Priestess Miriam Peretz and support from Kohenet Elsa Asher.

Jewish Ancestral Healing Daylong Workshop

Facilitated by ancestral healing practitioners Elsa Asher and Yael Schonzeit

Every lineage includes wise and loving ancestors. In this daylong workshop, we will engage  in ancestor reverence rituals rooted in Jewish tradition and discuss the fundamentals of Ancestral Lineage Healing according to the Ancestral Medicine model. Through ritual, experiential practice and group dialogue, we will explore practices for building relationships with well ancestors as a source of blessing, support and healing, while creating boundaries and support for troubled dead in need of assistance. While this workshop is grounded in Jewish praxis and traditions,  and open to all seeking connection, healing or support with their ancestors towards deeper wellness. There are no prerequisites for this workshop, though prior experience with inner work and spiritual practice is helpful.
