Gemara Boost Camp

Are you a SVARA-nik looking to go deeper in your learning?
Are you a blue sticker ready to live your best yellow sticker life at Queer Talmud Camp next summer?!
Wanna become besties with more of the bois in the back of your masechet?

SVARA’s Gemara Boost Camp is an opportunity to explore new areas of depth in your learning on your journey to being a player! Join SVARA Faculty for a soulful, intimate, and shtark* full day or weekend of study and community building.

*Putting the hardcore back in “hardcore, queer, and radically inclusive” 😉

At Gemara Boost Camp, seasoned SVARA-niks of all levels will have the chance to:

— Thicken your skills as an empowered Talmud learner

— Level up your experience with rabbinic texts and concepts to help you be an even better player (through in-depth workshops on Rashi, halakhic processes/concepts, and Rishonim)

— Reflect on the real-life application of our sugya to our lives as activists, artists, teachers, and queer folks

— Go deep into a new sugya (Talmud text) with a chevruta, teachers, and fairies

— Learn how to “take it home” if you’re feeling inspired to teach a bet midrash or convene a learning group in your home community

— Build deep, dazzling queer community with your SVARA comrades
