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, and 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
