Choose from one of three learning sessions:
The Torah of Justice with Rabbi Bennett
Join us as we mine the core teachings of Torah, the voice of the biblical Prophets and the wisdom of Jewish tradition for the values that inspire the impulse to seek justice in the world today.

Queering Ruth: How LGBTQ+ Jews have claimed Ruth and Naomi as
Models of Queer Love with Rabbi Bearman

Tradition has called Ruth and Naomi close friends, besties, roommates, colleagues... anything but lovers. But what if our tradition got it wrong? Let’s explore modern interpretations of Ruth and Naomi’s relationship and imagine a world where these two women were bound by romantic love.

Torah in Bloom with Rabbi Levine
Legend says that when the Israelites received the Torah, God caused the mountain to bloom. We will explore the texts that inform the custom of decorating our homes and synagogues in greenery and flowers in honor of Shavuot, and everyone will have the chance to create their own personal decoration to bring this beautiful tradition home with you.
