Activity time: 15 minutes

Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Read Leader Resource 1 so you will be comfortable presenting the information it provides.
  • Post a blank sheet of newsprint.

Description of Activity

Answer the questions you were unable to answer during the last workshop.

Then light the chalice with these words:

We light this chalice in celebration of Unitarian Universalism and the sustaining faiths of all people of the world. May the flame represent the fire of our commitment to understand all faithful people and build bridges that connect us as one human family.

Invite participants to check in by saying their names and briefly relating either:

  • What their names mean, if they looked them up between Workshop 5 and today, and their reaction to the meaning
  • A thought or question they have had about Judaism since the group completed Workshop 5.

Read or share in your own words the information on Leader Resource 1. List important terms from the resource on newsprint.
