Weekend Fling with Radical Talmud

Registration for Rabbi Benay Lappe of SVARA Yeshiva
Saturday Night, March 10 and Sunday, March 11, 2018

All Events are free

Saturday Night, March 10


7:00-9:30 pm

All radical ideas are born, crash, and are reborn as new paradigms.  In this interactive talk, Rabbi Benay Lappe describes the rabbinic revolution that is Talmud.

Knowledge of the Hebrew alphabet and attending the CRASH TALK are prerequisites for Sunday’s text study. (If you absolutely can’t make it to the CRASH TALK, and really, really want to come to the BET MIDRASH, please watch a very condensed version of it here.)

Sunday, March 11


9:30-12:30 and/or 1:30-4:30

Two half-days of learning, SVARA-style: Talmud served up the old-fashioned way — queer and radically inclusive. We’ll learn a complete Talmud text, start to finish, to complete memorization and with deep and total ownership.

All you need to know is your alef-bet to do it! Really!
