Rabbi Margie Jacobs
Margie Jacobs is a Reconstructionist rabbi. She has served as a congregational rabbi, regional director for the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, independent community rabbi, and facilitator of the Jewish Studio Process. She has been a practitioner and teacher of Jewish meditation for over 20 years and a website designer for over 10 years.
For many years, my work as rabbi and meditation teacher was very separate from my website designer work- each provided balance to the other and expressed a different part of myself.
About three years ago, my spiritual practitioner and designer selves came together when I discovered art as a spiritual practice through the Jewish Studio Project (JSP). I was instantly enchanted- it was clear to me that this moment calls for us to not only be mindful- present and responsive to whatever life brings, but also to be creative- to imagine what could be, and to bring beauty and joy to our lives through art. I became part of the inaugural cohort of the JSP facilitator training, and have had the honor and delight of leading this mindful art practice across the country virtually and in person.
I am thrilled to once again bring together my diverse interests in the Discover Jewish Art project, as I offer easily customizable Canva Templates, many of which include the artwork of amazing DJA artists.
