Come join 700 Benches, a SVARA-method beit midrash (house of study) created in collaboration with Kehilla Community Synagogue (more information about SVARA is at www.svara.org). In this 2-hour class, you’ll learn an ancient Jewish text in its original language, explore Talmud study as a spiritual practice, and co-create a supportive, queer-normative community of study. All you need to begin is your alef-bet (Hebrew alphabet)
One Zoom session on Tues., May 26 from 5-7pm.

If you’ve been thinking about giving your interest in Jewish experience more focused attention, Kehilla would like to encourage, and help support your effort. However you define what “Jewish” (or “Kehillian”) experience means to you, there are opportunities to explore and enrich that part of your life. You may have a desire to study toward a bar/bat mitzvah ceremony, or a conversion, or just to give yourself the gift of deeper personal exploration.
We invite you to a 6-month commitment starting at the High Holy Days. Those interested will choose among a variety of experiences: classes (Hebrew included), groups, partnered study (chevruta), solo study, personal reflection and exploration of mitzvot and the spiritual underpinnings of social action. Some participants will identify a concrete goal; others will just see what develops.
If this intrigues you, please respond (“I’m curious” is a sufficient response, more is welcome) to email@example.com . No commitment now—let’s talk!
