In Summary

The Krakow Workshop in pictures:

Part of the interior of the Temple Synagogue where we held the workshop

The panels before we got set up, just to give an example of our space

Rick shared inspirational poems and readings at morning meetings
And to make sure we were alert, Marie concluded morning meetings with a game of "Zip, Zap, Zop"
 And now, taking a look back...
