Queer Talmud Study
with SAJ Rabbinic Intern Noah Rubin-Blose
Thursdays, February 4, 11, and 18, from 7-8:30PM

What is possible when we bring a queer perspective to our study of the Talmud, a 1500-year-old text full of Rabbinic stories, law, and conversations? Together, we will look at the ways in which a queer lens liberates the text and offers a powerful read on issues of power, relationships, normalcy, and marginality. We will explore texts on the themes of choosing our families, whose bodies are considered normal, and institutional power and access. Texts will be provided in translation, and everyone is welcome! No matter how you identify, be prepared to bring your whole self to the discussion.

Session 1 (Thursday, February 4): Family and relationships
Session 2 (Thursday, February 11): Our bodies
Session 3 (Thursday, February 18): Power and institutions

Come to one session or all three!
