Saturday, November 23, 2019 at 7:00 pm at Congregation Emanu-El, 1461 Blanshard Street — Join Rabbi Harry Brechner for an interactive evening using art and drama to expand the sacred Torah narratives in a search for deeper meaning and insights. In the first part of the workshop we will experiment with hands on Midrash, using torn paper collage to unpack and explore stories from our Biblical ancestors. In the second half of the workshop we will employ techniques of “Bibliodrama” to flesh out poignant Torah narratives.
Rabbi Harry trained with Peter Pitzele the founder of Bibliodrama, a form of psychodrama that conjures up deep archetypes, often seeing Torah narrative through the lens of “a cast of internal characters,” allowing participants to traverse their inner worlds in search of personal insight and greater spiritual awareness.
This is the second presentation of Alternative Realities in Judaism series. Admission is by donation; light refreshments will be served.
