Open Beit Midrash returns October 21
Open Beit Midrash returns for its third year, October 21, 2014 through April 28, 2015! Keep your Tuesday evenings open!
We are very proud to announce the third year of the pioneering Open Beit Midrash at Kane Street Synagogue. This program creates a passionate community of learning by regularly offering stimulating classes taught by New York’s most talented and engaging adult education teachers.
This year, the Open Beit Midrash will survey classical Jewish texts, from the Bible to 20th Century Israeli poetry, through eight consecutive three week mini-courses, from October 21, 2014 to April 28, 2015. Because of our commitment to diversity, and the great skill of our teachers, the Open Beit Midrash engages learners of all levels, from novices to those who have studied Jewish texts for years. All texts are in English translation. Courses run from 7:30-9:00 P.M. and there are refreshments available beforehand from 6:45-7:30 P.M.
The first course this year will be “The Mark of Lilith: Discovering meaning in Biblical stories through master works of art” taught on Tuesday evenings October 21 and 28 and November 4 by Samuel Klein, lecturer and writer on theology and the arts.
