We're one week away from Rosh Hashanah - historically the biggest working week of the year for feldmesterins.
I wanted to re-share this ritual guide as well as a new guide created by Rabbi Noam Lerman for a group ritual using ancestral objects instead of graves "for when our cemeteries are far away or gone" - a problem I get asked about all the time when I'm discussing this ritual
Photos are from a recent cemetery measuring workshop at Mount Carmel, Queens, led by myself, Sarah Chandler and Eleonore Weill with Shamir Collective, the Workers Circle and Shomer Collective. Photo credit: Toney Brown https://toneybrown.weebly.com/
Stay tuned for a video coming out in the next few weeks, plus a new post about how I've been using cemetery measuring to reclaim another forgotten women's practice.
