Featuring Rabbi Dr. Jonathan K. Crane, PhD

Nurture your mind and your spirit! Drop in any Shabbat morning at 9:00 a.m. to pray and study with a wonderful group of people.

Join the Shabbat Study Minyan for text study led by Rabbi Crane on Trysts in the Garden: Reconsidering the Naḥash. You may think you know the creature who convinced Eve to eat that fruit: it was a scheming, slithery serpent, right? Not according to rabbinic sources and Christian art.  This visual traipse through the Garden of Eden demonstrates that the naḥash defies categorization in multiple ways and challenges conventional notions regarding companionship. This juicy conversation is relevant for an era of increasing gender and sexual fluidity.

To attend in-person, please refer to our COVID-19 policy.
