    7:00 PM

    On the Road to Integration: Ishbitz Chassidut on Kabbalat haTorah
    Rute Yair-Nussbaum
    Mondays, July 9 & 16 and Wednesdays, July 11 & 18, 7-8:30pm

    Price: $ 100.00

    In the chasidic school of thought of Ishbitz, accepting Torah means progressing from infancy to maturity, and becoming the full self you are meant to be. This involves accepting responsibility, fostering an internal independence, and integrating all of the parts of yourself. We will study texts from the Ishbitzer and the Beit Yaakov,  reflect on the relationship between Torah Study and self-construction, continue with Rebbe Levi Yitzchak of Berdichev, the Radomsker, Netivot Shalom and others, and learn how all this changes our understanding of prayer.

    Class will take place at the Jewish Center- 131 West 86th Street.
    Class meets Mondays, July 9 & 16 and Wednesdays, July 11 & 18.

    Sexuality and Sanctity: Is it Possible in a “Tinder”-ized World?
    Nechama Goldman Barash

    Sexuality and Sanctity: Is it Possible in a “Tinder”-ized World?
    Nechama Goldman Barash
    Tuesdays, 7:30-8:30pm

    Price: $ 0.00

    As a religion, Judaism understands the centrality of sexual desire to the human existence and rather than deflect or suppress such desire, it has embraced opportunities to sanctify the sexual experience.  Today, however, there are many unprecedented challenges: easy access to explicit sexual material, casual relationships between the genders from high school onward, long term relationships lasting for years before marriage, later age until marriage, and, the reality of LGBTQ in religious communities. We will use rabbinic texts to examine the discourse of contemporary sexual experience and see whether Jewish values and attitudes can help us re-frame some of the challenges, behaviors and conflicts we face today.

    Class will take place at the Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life at NYU- 7 East 10th Street

    4 sessions: July 3, 10, 17 & 24

Support Drisha

At Drisha, people of all ages and backgrounds study Torah in an inclusive Beit Midrash, marked by deeply rigorous and honest learning, a commitment to the Jewish people, and a passion for connecting our study of texts with our individual and communal lives.

I learned what it means to bring your whole self to Torah study. This meant challenging myself and others to formulate an idea honestly and with clarity, grappling with an idea within a previously held worldview, bringing every discipline and insight to the table as a potential tool to understanding, and sharing a joy and enthusiasm with the community of students of Torah that surrounded me.
