The Radical Wisdom Workshop (1 of 5)

October 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Radical Wisdom Workshop

Navigating this life needs radical wisdom. This workshop is a deep dive into both Jewish sources of radical wisdom and learning the skills to engage Judaism in radical ways.

Topic – Jewish Mysticism. While some participants will focus on other chosen material, the majority of those who have registered are interested in exploring Jewish Mysticism.

To ground us in this complex and exciting material, we will explore a range of Jewish mystical interpretations on Genesis 12 – Abraham’s response to the call to set out on a profound journey. Is this a story of the roots of moral conscience? The path of souls from the Tree of Life to material existence? An erotic awakening? The story of an ordinary man transcending ordinary life? And how do each of these (and more) translate into radical insights and action today?

Rabbi Miriam will teach at the beginning of each class and will provide materials for hevrutah (study buddy pairs or small groups) to focus on aspects of particular interest.  Rabbi Miriam and other guides-in-residence will be there to answer questions and offer support.  At the end of each evening, you’ll get to hear highlights from each hevrutah’s learning.Let’s fill the room with the buzz of engaged discussion and discovery. 

NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE IN JEWISH LEARNING NECESSARY.
