Kohenet Ketzirah Lesser (she/her/hers) is a maker and teacher of the sacred arts and a corporate priestess. Through Devotaj Sacred Arts she creates Jewishly-rooted objects and artifacts that serve not only as spiritual tools in the present, but also as a dialogue between past and possible futures. Her work is rooted in Jewish mystical, magickal, healing, and folk practices across space, time, and all the worlds. She received ordination as a Kohenet from the Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute in 2009, as part of the first cohort.
