Observations of a rebellious daughter: psycho-spiritual preparation for shiva

Mimi Feigelson 

Yellow 21

Mimi Feigelson's memoir challenges formative institutions of our tradition regarding the psycho-spiritual needs of the 21st century mourner, based on her father’s last day and his shiva. In a culture of blended families, individualism, and continents separating parents and siblings for decades, how do we converge under one roof for a meaningful week of mourning?

Is Judaism a religion? Protestant and Islamic models

Shlomo Zuckier 

Yellow 22

A consideration of the nature of religion, utilising recent theoretical work by Talal Asad and others, is placed in conversation with an analysis of the nature of various forms of contemporary Jewish religion - Beit Midrash, synagogue, and beyond.

Sing us a song of Zion: art and music on the Book of Lamentations

Deborah Kahn-Harris 

Green 26

Artists have used the Bible as a source of inspiration for centuries. What can their cultural representations about the Book of Lamentations teach us? What have their efforts produced and do they help us access the Bible? Can their art and music serve as a bridge for us to one of our most challenging texts?

Songs in the key of life: Fulfilling the 613th commandment

Shep Rosenman 

Blue 33

This workshop asks participants to "write your own Torah" by exploring the nature of our relationships to some fundamental structures of Jewish life. Bring your writing/creating instruments of choice, an open heart, and your voice!

My dear ones: Onefamily and the Final Solution

Jonathan Wittenberg 

Blue 34

Reading & reflection on my book on the fate of my father’s family in the Shoah: what it means to learn from their letters about the destiny of relatives I never met, and why it matters to tell their story. Dedicated to the memory of Professor David Cesarani.

Israel 2020: thinking beyond the territorial box - two states without borders (2 of 3)

David Newman 

Red 1

It has traditionally been thought that peace between Israel and the Palestinians must involve the creation of two states. But what happens when it is no longer possible to draw borders between two entities? This session discusses alternative solutions which do away with borders but still enable power sharing between Israelis and Palestinians.

Jeremiah: agony and ecstasy: A prophet embroiled in history (1 of 2)

Lindsey Taylor-Guthartz 

Red 3

In these two sessions, we’ll explore both the tragedy and the hope that can be found in the book of Jeremiah. In the first session, we’ll meet Jeremiah himself, possibly the unluckiest prophet ever, and learn about his troubled times, focusing on a close reading of Chapter 1 with the aid of our greatest commentators.

Traduco: The Obviousness of Invisibility

Clelia Piperno 

Red 5

This session will concentrate on on "TRADUCO", a web application developed by the the Italian Institute for Computational Linguistics specifically for the Babylonian Talmud Translation Project. TRADUCO was designed to process Talmudic text and knowledge according to the principles of computational linguistics. It also includes highly advanced editorial tools.

Ethics of eating meat

Gabriel Botnick 

Red 6

Adam and Eve were vegans. Humans only started eating meat after God permitted Noah to do so. Ever since then, our meat consumption seems to have gotten a bit out of control. Going off the assumption that the Torah permits us to eat meat, we’ll explore whether the Jewish tradition provides a framework for being more conscientious carnivores.

"Joseph" at Limmud

Rivka Gottlieb  Tony Bogod  Natalie Grazin  Zahavit Shalev 

Red 7

Who doesn't love "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat"? Join us for a sing-along led by maestro Matthew Anisfeld and cast members from New North London Synagogue's fabulously fun recent community production.

Ask A Rabbi/nit - Gendered Authority, Family Planning and the story of individualized Jewish Law

Lea Taragin-Zeller 

Turquoise 19

Based on an ethnographic study of religious Israeli Jews, this session will discuss the role rabbinic authority plays within intimate decision making. It will also offer an analysis of gendered authority and highlight the differing ways female and male religious authority is constructed, performed and negotiated in contemporary Israel.
