And the Fire Flashed all Around: Introduction to Song of Songs

January 28, 2016

Join us as we discover Song of Songs through text study, discussion, pictures, and music. Like Ben Azzai, we will link up the words of the Torah with the Writings, until the fire flashes all around. Sunglasses are recommended. Knowledge of Hebrew and prior text study experience are not required.
Study will be led by Penina Weinberg, who brings a queer and feminist perspective.
6:45 pm for shmooze. Bring veggie snacks if you wish.
Study will begin promptly at 7:15pm.
