Register for the last Zusia course before summer

Rabbi Susan Shamash will teach the final offering in the inaugural study year of Zusia: The Best Midrash at Or Shalom. Her five-week course Fasting, Rain, and Three Magicians: Magic in the Talmud explores the lives and magical abilities of three famous Talmudic magicians: Honi HaMa’agel, Nachtimon ben Gurion, and Nachum Ish Gamzu. The first class is Tuesday, May 7, from 7 to 9 p.m. Each class begins and closes with a meditation practice with the students in Matthew Gindin’s already-in-progress course, Trail of Text Part 3: The Creation of the Kaleidoscope of Modern Judaism.

Be sure to register online for Rabbi Susan’s course by Friday, May 3. You’ll receive a tax receipt for the course fee.
