**Get a taste of the kind of Torah we'll learn in a recent post by R. Aviva Richman here**
Is it for me? If you're between ages 18 and 30, and thirsty for the Torah's wisdom about food - yes.
When is it? January 5-9, 12-16. Come for one or both weeks.
What will it be? A week of beit midrash learning, embedded in a community of prayer, shared meals, and conversation - focused on questions including: Do the ethics of food production affect kashrut? Is kashrut meant to separate people who keep it from people who don't (and why or why not)? What does it mean for eating to be a Jewish spiritual practice? Is vegetarianism a preference, a commandment, or a rebellion? Plus: you'll get to bake your own matzah, and learn how to make your own for Pesah! For a sample schedule, click here.
You can even get a sneak peak by reading an article written by one of the teachers, Rav Aviva, for JewSchool.com, How can we make the food we eat part of the Torah that we live?
How much does it cost? $200 for one week, $350 for both. $50 discount for referring friends. Tuition includes breakfast and lunch throughout the program.
Can I get college credit? Yes! Tuition for college credit is $500/credit. Credit needs to be arranged ahead of time in consultation with your school's registrar and Dena Weiss.
