Kehilat Hadar and Hazon are joining forces to present a “Learn and Lunch” program!

 

Rabbi Aviva Richman, a faculty member at Yeshivat Hadar, will teach a session entitled “Desert Torah.” See full description below. Shabbat morning services start at 9:30 AM, followed by kiddush, learning, and then a catered meat lunch with vegetarian options. 

This event is subsidized by a grant from Hazon. Registration is $10 for adults over 13 yrs. Registration fees are not refundable. 

 

Registration is now closed. 

 

Description: Why was the Torah given in the desert?  What kind of relationship did God mean to cultivate with Israel by bringing us to a place without food? We will study midrashim that offer multiple perspectives on the experience of Israel in the desert and ask what the desert teaches about the role of Torah in a world of limited resources.

Aviva Richman is on the faculty at Yeshivat Hadar where she teaches Talmud, Halakhah and Midrash.  She received private ordination in Israel, and is currently a doctoral candidate at NYU in the field of rabbinic literature as a Wexner fellow. Aviva has taught widely in the Jewish community, including Limmud in three countries.  Particular interests include Judaism and Gender, and a love of niggunim.  Aviva lives in Riverdale with her spouse Tzemah and children Boaz and Elisha.
