Up All Night – a Shavuot Learning Collaboration

Saturday, May 30, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - Sunday, May 31, 2020 @ 2:00 am

On Saturday May 30th, Kehilla is participating in Up All Night, a Shavuot learning collaboration between Kehilla, Hinenu (Baltimore), Kadima (Seattle), Kol Tzedek (Philadelphia), Kolot Chayeinu (Brooklyn), T’chiyah (Detroit), Tzedek (Chicago), and New Synagogue Project (DC). 

Rabbi Gray will be teaching the following workshop from 8:30pm-9:45pm PST. 

Both/And: Midrash, Continuity, and Disruption

Led by Rabbi Gray Myrseth

Hazzan Shulamit will be co-leading the West Coast Havdalah with Rabbi David Basior from Kadima at 9:45pm PST.

In this unique historical moment, when do we want to tell new stories and disrupt oppressive systems? When do we want to ensure that things we value carry over from the world as we knew it before? How can midrash, a literary technology developed by the ancient rabbis, help us understand the task we’re facing?

In this workshop, participants will investigate how midrash challenges the binary between continuity and disruption, as well as having an opportunity to explore their own stories through these dual lenses. We’ll look at some examples of classical midrashic text, but no knowledge of Hebrew is required.
