Description

Exploring Sexual Boundaries in Rabbinic Literature: an interactive workshop of text and art

With visiting Orot teacher, Sarah Palmer

6:00 - 7:30

Sketchpad - 4700 N. Ravenswood, suite B, Chicago

$20/person


How do we understand sexuality within a Jewish framework? In this workshop, we will explore seemingly contradictory texts, ask whether they are relevant to us today, and consider the consequences of sexuality becoming a matter of public discourse. The session will integrate hands-on art-making as a medium for exploring the meaning of these boundary-pushing texts and ideas.

Sarah Palmer was born and raised in Chicago. She holds a degree in Fine Arts from Brandeis University and a certificate in Experiential Jewish Education from the Pardes Center for Jewish Educators. Sarah has been combining Torah and the Arts in various capacities for over ten years. She has worked with Jewish Day Schools, Kol HaOt, the National Havurah Committee, and several other non-profits. Her cultivation of art as a tool to access text has led her to communities in Israel, Turkey, and Bulgaria. She loves to see how creative modalities help her students access text. Sarah draws inspiration for her own art from her practice as a birth doula, local art installations, and Torah study.
