In the Beginning: 4 Weeks of Study on Genesis

Four delicious dips into our oldest and most formative stories. This year we dive into the primordial, looking at our Creation myths, the birth of humanity, the Garden of Eden, ancient monstrous memories and global cataclysm. Okay, and it will be fun. We will look at core text, commentaries, mysticism, angelology, theology, natural sciences, queer studies, and everything else that comes tumbling in when you open the door of Torah.

Sessions are:

  • Sunday, March 3, from 2-4 PM: The Great Cosmology

  • Sunday, March 10, from 2-4 PM: Snakes, Gardens and the Human Condition

  • Sunday, March 17, from 2-4PM: Gods and Monsters

  • Sunday, March 24, from 2-4PM: Noah and Global Cataclysm

Taught by Ner Shalom's Spiritual Leader, Reb Irwin Keller.

The fee for the series is $50; $40 for Ner Shalom members.
