If you had exactly six words to describe your life, what would they be? As a continuation of the book Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life published by Reboot in collaboration with SMITH Magazine, the online storytelling community founded in 2006, Reboot highlights Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish life from some of the many diverse communities grappling with Judaism, meaning and identity.
This week, read memoirs on Jewish spirituality and connection to community. What is spiritual? When do you feel most connected? Is spirituality Jewish? What is holiness?
To participate in the project, please email your Six-Word Memoir to Sasha@rebooters.net
