Limited Capacity seats available

But what if the tradition itself offered a surprising, hopeful way out of this conflict – a path that holds out hope of uniting creativity and authenticity? Our learning will focus on a single midrash that uses the image of bread-baking as the paradigm for Torah study – with an eye towards Shavuot, with its pairing of the grain harvest and the giving of the Torah. All sources will be in English and Hebrew, and personal reflection will be our ultimate goal.
