tribal visions for a judaism beyond zionism
September 22th - June 15th, Monthly on Thursdays, 6-7pm PST
Draw on the stories of the 12 tribes in pre-zionist torah, midrash and kabbalah to access wisdom in a non-colonial context. Create teshuvah for the harmful aspects of torah's tribal visions. Tribal Visions for Judaism Beyond Zionism grows out of Lynn's work in solidarity with Indigenous Land Back Movements, including Palestinian & Native American land back movements, Black Reparations movements and Jewish anti-colonial communities of practice. Tribal Visions is part of Lynn's new book: Way of the Mishkan: A Ceremonial Guide to Indigenous Land Back and Reparations Teshuvah. Fee includes 18% for reparations and land back movements.
Dates: 10 classes (once a month) on Thursdays, 6 P - 7 P PST, 9 - 10 PM EST, Sept 22, Oct 20, Nov 17, Dec 15, Jan 19, Feb 16, March 16, April 20, May 18, June 15.
