Recurring Event Event Series (See All)
Spiritual Writing: Midrash and Making Meaning

Midrash are interpretive stories that explore the blank spaces in Torah, often offering answers to questions of meaning, character, and inner life. We’ll read some classical midrash and explore what driving questions fueled the sages. Then with guided writing exercises, creative prompts, and gentle feedback, we’ll also write and share our own midrashic responses to the Torah stories at hand.

This adult education class taught by Rabbi Rachel Barenblat will meet on Zoom on Sundays (January 29 at 4pm + February 5, February 12, February 26, March 5, & March 12 at 2pm).

Tuition is $72 for members of Congregation Beth Israel & Temple Beth El of City Island, and $108 for non-members. Registration is available via Google Forms at https://bit.ly/Spiritual-Writing-5783.
