THERE IS A POET IN EVERYONE—EVEN YOU—REALLY!!!
The Cento Patchwork Poetry Workshop By Rabbi Stephen S Pearce
Tuesday evenings: October 16, 23, 30: November 6 (7:00 – 9:00 pm)
Free of Charge; registration is required.

REGISTER HERE

Rabbi Stephen S. Pearce, The Congregation Emanu-El Taube Scholar, will teach a workshop for the known and unknown poet in everyone.  It may seem odd, but everyone is a poet, even if he or she never liked or understood poetry, has never written a poem or finds poetry intimidating.  This poetry workshop will introduce the inexperienced, novice, or skilled writer to poetry that virtually writes itself often called foundverbatim or appropriated poetry.

This traditional literary device known as a Cento creates the new meaning from previously written texts by taking words, phrases, and sometimes, entire passages from other sources and reframes them into a new poem, the literary equivalent of a collage. The Cento dates back to the 3rd or 4th century.  By recycling previously written verses, texts are given new contexts, pretexts, and meaning.  Try your hand at writing a Cento or come to enjoy the creations of the workshop participants some of which will appear in the Temple Chronicle at a later date.  No previous experience is required. Please bring a favorite (short) poem to share with participants.


Jeremy MorrisonHow to Read the Bible: Bridging the Gap between Ourselves and Our Inherited Texts
Taught by Lehrhaus Judaica’s new executive director, Rabbi Jeremy Morrison
Tuesday evenings: October 16, 23, 30; November 6 (7:00 – 9:00 pm)

REGISTER HERE on the Lehrhaus Judaica website.

To many contemporary readers, the Bible often feels impenetrable and outdated, principally because of the manner in which Jewish texts have been taught in religious schools for generations. This course will explore methods for reading the Bible that are central to liberal Judaism’s orientations to reading sacred texts but are not frequently utilized in synagogue settings. We will discuss myth and metaphor and the Bible’s literary history in order to uncover the ancient meanings of several of the Bible’s classic narratives and its law codes and to determine their relevance to modern-day Jews and the world in which we live.


Jewish Word Wizards Of Broadway: Musical Theatre’s Legendary Lyricists
Taught by
Musical Theatre Maven, Bonnie Weiss

Tuesday evenings: October 16, 23, 30; November 6, 13 (7:00 – 9:00 pm)
Members: $36; Nonmembers: $54

REGISTER HERE

Let’s explore the richness of thought, feeling, wit and whimsy of some of the musical theatre’s most acclaimed and under-appreciated word wizards.  And let’s find out why over 70% of them were Jews.  In this course we’ll focus on five of these verbal virtuosos:  Lorenz Hart, Ira Gershwin, Yip Harburg (“Over the Rainbow”, “April in Paris). Dorothy Fields, Sheldon Harnick, and Oscar Hammerstein.  We ‘ll also look at how they expressed their experiences and concerns of being Jews in America through their work.

Your presenter, Bonnie Weiss, is a seasoned theatre educator, historian, and writer. She teaches musical theatre appreciation for San Francisco State, U.C. Berkeley and Santa Clara University, and for professional and educational groups throughout California. 

She has taught at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Dominican University and the Colleges of Marin and San Mateo.  She has written feature stories for The Sondheim Review and Stage Directions Magazine.

What questions keep you up at night?

What answers bring you comfort?
What more are you curious to know?

At Emanu-El, we are an active community of lifelong Jewish learners – in the endless pursuit of spiritual growth and exploration. As Jews, we are compelled to question and debate. These conversations energize us as we gain new perspectives and challenge our own long-held beliefs. Our shared desire for knowledge and for community enriches us as individuals and bonds us as a congregation.

Emanu-El thrives when we are learning together. We hope that you will find time on your calendar and in your mind to join us on a thought-provoking and powerful Jewish journey.
