My name is Carly Lesser, but I am also known as Ketzirah and Carlen Lea. For years, I’ve kept these parts of myself very separate. Since one is the part that is focused on religious and spiritual work and the other is the part the explores culture, technology, and marketing – it seemed like a wise choice to keep them apart. One is my avocation the other my vocation, and talking religion at work and work in spiritual contexts simply seemed wrong.
But I feel the time to bring them together has come. It is the intersection of spirituality, culture and technology where I am a full and well-rounded person. It’s also where I believe I can offer the most unique contributions.
As the Ketzirah (קצירה) side of myself, I am a Kohenet, Artist and Ritualist and I focus on creating joyful, meaningful, Jewish experiences that empower and encourage people to engage in Jewish life. Work with me to bring meaning to life’s milestones through ritual and art.
