Nefesh Sunday Boost: Torah Study
April 4, 2021 @ 11:00 am – 12:15 pm PDT
Their Stories, Our Stories
Torah study Sundays November – May (adults) and November through January (kids)
Join Rabbi Susan as she opens wide the stories of our ancestors in the Torah bringing an intimacy and shared imagination. This class we will focus on the stories of our beautiful and flawed matriarchs and patriarchs that hold such possibility for exploration in our lives. Enter into the narratives and poetics that have shaped our people over the centuries and continue to everyday. And what about what is not in the text? Who are those that are in Torah but with little voice? What are the stories calling out to be heard? Rabbi Susan will share story, text, song, poetry to deepen and widen an endless path of Torah.
You are encouraged to attend the whole series but welcome to attend the ones you are able. Each session will center in a different story and all levels of Torah learning experience are welcome from first timers to regulars.
