Are you Jewish?

No answer yet

Please describe your interest in Torah study.

I would be excited to study midrash in a group. I have found such joy in teaching and learning from my religious school students over the last two years, but I look forward to studying with adults for a change. : )

What special interests, knowledge and/or talents will you bring to the discussion?

Even though I am in early in my Jewish journey, I am generally well read and articulate. My background is in art history and the law so I bring an interesting perspective on readings. I am considering going back to get a Ph.D. in Moral Philosophy and Ethics, and that will be a significant outside interest over the coming months and will certainly influence my participation.

Do you believe the Torah is the word of God?

I am Jewish. I love to read and talk about things that matter among friends. I have not been involved in a study group for the last two years because I have been teaching in my Temple's Religious School. I am looking forward to a "sabbatical" year this year to be a student again and focus on my Jewish learning.
