Body Positivity in Life and Death: Lessons from Jewish Burial Preparation

Jews have traditionally accompanied one another from death to burial with liturgy and ritual bathing known as tahara. This session, taught by experienced tahara volunteers, will explore strategies embedded within tahara for loving care of the human body. We will investigate how contemporary ideas around body positivity might influence the ritual of tahara and, in turn, what tahara might teach us about honoring our own bodies.

Receiving the Whole Torah – Even the Parts We Wish Weren’t There

First to cry out in horror, and then to bravely enter as a peacemaker, the violent places in Torah, the “harsh passages,” offer an opportunity to engage with human violence. Continuing a string of Tikkun teachings, approach the violent passages as offering a controlled setting in which to consider strategies by which to challenge and transcend violence in text, in our own lives and in the world around us. As much as we may wish they weren’t there, in our ability to confront and wrestle with the harsh passages and to receive the whole Torah, so we learn to engage with the fullness of life, learning to soften its harshness and to help create the world as envisioned at the beginning.

The Mystery of the “Mixed Multitude” Who Came Out of Egypt with Israel

In one enigmatic verse from the Torah, we learn that a “mixed multitude” of people made their way to freedom with Moses and the Israelites. Through an exploration of classic commentators and Midrash we’ll see that this mysterious group received a variety of treatments in the rabbinic imagination, for better or for worse. In these commentaries are many lessons for us about the meaning of freedom and oppression and understanding the Other.

Makhloket, Authority, and (re-)Writing History

The ancient beit midrash was filled with intrigue! Rabban Gamliel and Rabbi Yehoshua had multiple disagreements about Jewish law, which were not just academic, but also direct challenges to Rabban Gamliel's rule as head of the Sanhedrin. Rabbi Akiva often was the swing, deciding voice between them. Rabban Gamliel's lasting place in the lineage of rabbinic authority was only assured, or perhaps one might better say, asserted, by his grandson as the Mishnah was redacted. Learn about power, fake news, and politics in the early rabbinic period.

Tocho k'Varo: Who can enter the Beit Midrash?

In Masechet Brachot, we learn that "Rabban Gamliel would proclaim and say: Any student whose inside are not like his outside will not enter the study hall." What does this mean? What does it imply about those who teach and learn Torah? Chevruta study and discussion as we work to understand this requirement.
