Crafting interactive learning spaces is one of my passions. I love bringing a community together to explore Jewish themes, deepen their prayer experience, lead spiritual encounters in nature, and delve into deep learning that speaks to people where they are at. Judaism is an everlasting wellspring of learning and guidance, awaiting us with open arms. Let’s dive in!
I offer classic Jewish text studies and lead discussion and learning groups for the Jewish community, as well as workshops on meditation, movement and music. Text studies and guided conversation draws from a range of Jewish sources, including Torah, Talmud, Midrash, Chassidut and Kabbalah. I’ve assembled a large collection of resources on issues surrounding sexuality, which received the Whizin Prize of Jewish Ethics and you can view here. To get a sense of my style and my Torah, please visit my blog or contact me for lesson samples.
In my workshops, I combine different expressions of Jewish creativity and embodiment to lead participants on a transformative journey that draws from Torah and Jewish teachings. These workshops foster community through sound and silence, creation and rest, and hold space to look within and connect with the divine.
I share traditional Jewish content in a relatable, accessible form. My workshops appeal to the Jewishly literate and those who don't know a word of Hebrew. In the video below, I teach a niggun, a traditional wordless tune, to an unfamiliar audience.
"Ariel Wolpe is a dynamic, strong, vibrant text-person, one of the text-people Abraham Joshua Heschel speaks about our people needing. Ariel Wolpe facilitates chants and musical meditations with ease and grace. Her sweet and strong voice and presence keeps the room in support as she guides us through the melodies and rhythms of our people, of my heart and my soul."
