Reza Green and Moshe Silver – Dec. 20-22
Multi-talented teachers and musicians, Reza and Moshe facilitated their City Island (NY) shul’s Shabbat morning program, for which Moshe taught Chumash and Pirkei Avot for many years before their recent move to Princeton, NJ. They bring high-intensity kavanna to the davenning, and are also master teachers of Jewish text and tradition. Moshe will offer a workshop on “Meditation with the Avot,” a Torah-based approach to Zen meditation. On Sunday, Moshe will present a program of storytelling and drumming for the Family Bayt Midrash, while Reza, who will layn for the minyan on Shabbat morning, conducts a workshop for experienced Havurah Torah-layners.
Sarah Braun and Shai Gluskin – Jan. 17-19
Sarah and Shai are both active members of the Germantown Jewish Centre in Philadelphia, where they
lead davenning, layn, and offer divrei torah. Sarah is a psychiatrist and a Jungian analyst, whose interests include the interrelationships among art, myth, dreams, religion and spirituality. Shai, a graduate of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, is the Director of Education of the Jewish Reconstructionist Federation and an adjunct member of the RRC faculty. His interests include parenting as a spiritual discipline as well as Israeli popular culture and poetry. On Sunday morning Shai will lead adults and kids in TorahQuest, an interactive Torah study experience.
Diane J. Klein – Jan. 31-Feb. 2. “Jewish Law School Weekend.”
Diane J. Klein teaches at the Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston, TX. She received her JD from UCLA’s School of Law in 1997, and is currently a PhD candidate in Philosophy at UC Berkeley. She also teaches Jewish Adult Education courses on comparative Jewish, Israeli, and American law and on Jewish mysticism. This Shabbaton, timed to coincide with Parshat Mishpatim, will provide an introduction to traditional Jewish (as distinct from Israeli) approaches to contemporary legal issues (not matters of Jewish religious law or observance). Its focus will be on rabbinic legal reasoning and substantive principles of law drawn from halakhah. Sunday’s family program will explore classical legal dilemmas, combining the “Socratic method” used in law school classrooms with a “problem method” appropriate for mixed-age groups.
More Shabbaton weekends scheduled for the Spring! Details will be available soon.
These Shabbatonim are made possible by the members of Havurah of South Florida.
We invite and welcome your participation and support!
