The Imperfect Parent and the High Holidays
Parents often struggle with embodying a mythical image of "perfect parent" while coming to terms with their own imperfections. In this workshop for parents of children of all ages (preschool to adult), we will use the themes of the High Holidays to explore how we can embrace our imperfect attempts to love and mentor our children. Co-sponsored by West End Synagogue. (more)REGISTER

The Golden Road to Samarkand and Other Merchant Tales
Our popular lecturer Andrée Aelion Brooks will return to tell us the story of her journey to Uzbekistan last fall. She traveled there to better understand and explore the community known as Bukharian Jews, who initially followed trade along the Silk Road during the first millennium (and some say even earlier). Others went as far as India for its gems, and many of those stories were first discovered in the Cairo Geniza a century ago. (more)REGISTER

Women Read The Apocrypha: The Books That Did Not Make It
This series, taught by Dr. Raysh Weiss, will lavish some much-deserved attention on a group of ancient Jewish texts which constitute one of the most overlooked literary collections of Jewish history. The deeply political process of canonization was a rough one, leaving many prospective texts out in the cold. These apocryphal stories, which will be read in English translation, range from the bizarre to the sublime. In anticipation of Chanukah, the primary focus will be Maccabees I, II, and III and the story of Judith, through which the historical conditions that fueled these narratives will be considered, with an eye to how they relate to Jewish history and to the present moment. Some major issues for discussion and exploration include the politics of canonization, risk-taking and bravery, and, in particular, the role of valiant women in these texts. (more)REGISTER
