Elul Extravaganza
Learn side by side with other queer and trans folks, and find your place as an inheritor and transmitter of our holy tradition. Join Beyn Kodesh l'Chol for a SVARA-method Talmud Beit Midrash, as we prepare for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur!

Guided by Rabbi Becky Silverstein (he/him/his), we will study Talmud in its original Hebrew/Aramaic text. We are committed to a mixed level beit midrash, in which folks of (almost) all different Hebrew levels and Talmud experiences learn from each other. Learners must know the aleph-bet.

These are individual events - join us for one, two, or all three!

Thursday 9/12, 6:30-9:30pm, Night #1
Wednesday 9/18, 6:30-9:30, Night #2
Tuesday 9/24, 6:30-9:30, Night #3

Location: TBD. Jamaica Plain, Orange line / 39 Bus access.
Cost: $10-30 suggested sliding scale per session. Cost includes all materials, except dictionaries. If this is unattainable, you are welcome to pay what you can and/or to be in touch with other ways you can contribute to our learning community.
