In this program, participants are invited to investigate the symbol of doors and gates in Jewish thought in general, and in Jerusalem specifically. Gates are symbols of transformation and hope, of the transition between wondrous worlds. During the program we explore the architecture and various visual representations of gates and doors, and a modern midrash on the Gates of Jerusalem. After a facilitated text study, participants have the opportunity to create their own visual representations of the gates in their lives.
