Are you Jewish?

No answer yet

Please describe your interest in Torah study.

Not only do I find that studying midrash affords a limitless opportunity to re-think standard intepretations of the Torah, I believe it also offers us a tool with which to continue the interpretation in modern times.

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

A passion for Judaism, midrash and creative writing, as well as an open heart and open mind.

Do you believe the Torah is the word of God?

A brief introduction through a community class inspired my interest in midrash. I find the collective creativity, wisdom, humor and insight of Jewish sages a timeless source of inspiration and spiritual nourishment. In an effort to expand my interest and deepen my own spiritual experience while in community, I started this group.

Introduction

I am an enthusiastic participant in our amazing, beautiful world! A non-profit professional, I am deeply committed to the ideals of social justice and view my life though the lens of an infinitely meangingful, inclusive Judaism.
