“Beyond Words” Creative Torah Study

Friday, December 1, 2023 18 Kislev 5784

10:00 AM - 12:00 PMCongregation Beth Jacob (Chapel)

Bring your curiosity, love of Torah, creative spirit, and favorite art supplies. You are very likely to go home with deeper insights, stronger connections with one another, and a unique piece of religious art—even if you think you don’t have any artistic skill. Email Batya Dale with questions. Registration is below the following message from Batya.

Dear Friends

This Friday we’ll be gathering in the back room of the chapel for our last Beyond Words session of 2023.

I hope you will plan to be there, and I encourage you to invite/bring along a friend.  Our learnings are deeply enhanced when we can experience Torah through one another’s eyes, minds, hearts, and creative expressions.  (No "artistic skill” is needed—just curiosity and a bit of imagination.)

If you have favorite art supplies, please bring them along. I will provide collage materials.

Along those lines, please do plan to spend a bit of time with Vayishlach (Genesis 32:4–36:43) beforehand, so we can jump right into exploring the rich images and themes it contains.  

A lot of things happen in these verses; there are complicated interpersonal dynamics, actions, and themes.  
→ Which scenes most attract or repel you?  
→ Which feel connected to something you’re experiencing in your life?  

Check out this link.  

Please do let me know by Thursday if you can/can’t make it so we have the opportunity to prepare the needed space/materials.  

Thank you,
Batya

Sorry, Registration has ended.
