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.

“And the fire flashed all around.”
??What does flashing fire have to do with Song of Songs??
“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.”
??How did this sensual love poem find its way into the Hebrew Bible??
“For love is fierce as death…a blazing flame”
–On a cold winter’s night, you do not want to miss this opportunity to ignite the fires of your souls with Song of Songs–
Penina Weinberg has been teaching Hebrew Bible for over 10 years and is determined for people to claim and own the text for themselves. She holds a Masters Degree in Jewish Studies from Hebrew College.
