In January 2013, SVARA and Mishkan teamed up to create the most happening Jewish learning experience in Chicago--the SVARA and Mishkan (S&M) Bet Midrash. Now kicking off our second year of collaboration, the popular Tuesday night Bet Midrash is open to absolute beginners* and experienced students. The learning is rigorous, yet the bet midrash environment is warm and supportive. Students are strongly encouraged to bring their real-life experiences to bear on the text and to share openly in a Queer-positive space. Our learning will focus on skill-building (learning how to learn), the radical nature of the Jewish tradition, and the cultivation of Talmud study as a spiritual practice.
For more information, requirements and application, please go to www.svara.org/svaramishkan-bet-midrash/.

Talmud served up the old-fashioned way: hardcore, queer, and radically inclusive.
