The Studio Series

Koleinu Beit Midrash at Germantown Jewish Centre is excited to introduce a new, annual collection of studio gatherings. “The Studio Series” is a monthly gathering for spiritual seekers to explore themes of the Jewish year cycle, ancient teachings, and contemporary texts through creative process. We sing, share poetry, dig into Jewish ideas, and use materials to explore the themes of the season and Hebrew calendar. The Studio Series utilizes the methodology of the Jewish Studio Process, meant to unlock the creative potential we each carry. Our studio is a unique Jewish learning environment, in which we make space for the emergence of ideas that rest beneath the conscious self.

The Studio Series is complemented by weekly, morning creative practice on Wednesday mornings (open to all, regardless of participation in monthly Studio gatherings). Assistant Rabbi and Beit Midrash Director, Rabbi Rebecca Richman, facilitates The Studio Series, bringing her training as a Fellow with the Jewish Studio Project.

REGISTER HERE!  You are welcome to join for one session or multiple sessions. Cost per session is $35, a six-session multi-pack is $180, and the cost for the full year of gatherings is $360. Scholarships are available upon request. Email beitmidrash@germantownjewishcentre.org with questions or to find out more information.

See you in the studio!
