    Socratic Torah Study - Register Below

    Tuesday, Oct 27th 10:00a to 11:30a
    Every other week we will come together to dig deeply into a passage from the Hebrew Bible, as it emerges organically from questions and musings that are alive for us in that moment. Inspired by the improvisational style of study exemplified in the Zohar, the Bible of Jewish Mysticism, this class will be facilitated in a way that strives to be genuinely Socratic and exploratory while also paying careful attention to how these ancient ideas and images can speak to us today, in our own lives. Taught by Nathan Fisher.
