Joseph Redux:
Avivah Zornberg Prep

An immersive, interpretative, textual exploration. Like a layered chocolate cake. But richer.

Dive deep into the imaginative teachings and methods of Torah scholar Dr. Avivah Gottleib Zornberg, connecting the study of texts with everyday experience. Create your own version of (written) layer cake.

Rabbi Samuel Klein, scholar-in-residence at the Firehouse, together with Anne Germanacos, author of In the Time of the Girls and Tribute, will facilitate this five-session immersive class combining textual inquiry, creative activity and art encounters. Includes visit to SFMOMA (2/25).  

Doors open at 6. Class from 6:30-8pm.

Class limited to 15.

Rabbi Samuel Klein is Scholar-in-Residence at the Firehouse. He has served as Chief Jewish Officer of the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco and Director of Re-Imagining Jewish Education Through Art, a national arts initiative incubated at Yeshiva University. Samuel holds a BA and MA in Theology from Cambridge University, an MA in History of Art from University College London and trained as a Teaching Artist at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.  

Anne Germanacos is an educator, writer and spiritual director with a deep interest in exploring ways to live philanthropically.

The Scholar-in-Residence at the Firehouse helps cultivate a space for creative inquiry in a deeply contemplative setting. The hope is that the spirit and activities of collaborative inquiries will enliven participants as Jews, as thinkers, and as makers in the world.
