What’s a Jewitch? How are neo-paganism and witchcraft compatible with traditional Jewish practice? What’s the role of the modern Hebrew priestesses? A growing movement of secular Jews—mainly, but not exclusively women—are reclaiming the divine feminine and goddess worship. With
strong ties to eco-feminism, practitioners are using new liturgies and rituals to create diverse and radically inclusive Jewish communities. Join Marilyn Cooper to explore this phenomenon as well as Jewish texts and traditions about witchcraft.

Marilyn Cooper has studied Jewish magic and its history since childhood. She davens with the Traditional Egalitarian Minyan at Adas Israel and is a writer, poet and certified yoga & meditation teacher.
