Sunday Conversation for March:

Sunday Conversations March 2023 - Performance and Conversation with Sara Nesson

Sunday, March 19, 2023, 4 p.m. EST


Mishkan is Hebrew for “sacred space.” The Broken Mishkan is a 23-minute theatrical work that follows author Sara Nesson’s compelling journey toward wholeness after being diagnosed with ME/CFS. From swimming New Hampshire lakes to chanting psalms with nuns in a California forest, in a story spiced with humor and Jewish mysticism, Sara celebrates the poignant connections between art, healing, wilderness, and blessing.

Register for the March 19 Sunday Conversation

The 23-minute presentation will be followed by a period of conversation, with the entire program expected to last less than an hour. A recording of the presentation will be available briefly after the event, but only for those who registered for the event, and will not be posted to the MassME website.
