Join us this summer for the multi-generational, queer yeshiva of our dreams! Queer Talmud Camp is a gathering of queer folks, radicals, and seekers who come together for five days to immerse themselves in rigorous yeshiva-style learning in warm, loving, and joyful community. At Queer Talmud Camp we build a vibrant learning space that celebrates queer culture, cultivates inter-generational relationships, and reveals the deeply rooted radical queerness of the Jewish tradition.
Whether you’re an advanced Talmud learner or an absolute beginner, Queer Talmud Camp is for you! All you need is the ability to decode your alef-bet (i.e. sound out your Hebrew letters), and you’ll be learning Talmud in the original Hebrew/Aramaic. We guarantee it!
The bet midrash (learning space) is mixed-level: Beginners learn the Talmud text and Rashi, and the more advanced learners go beyond the Talmud and Rashi into codes and medieval commentaries. All texts are learned in the original Hebrew/Aramaic, without translation. But don’t let that scare you! Remember, even if you can only sound out your alef-bet, you can do this!
Queer Talmud Camp is supported in part by generous grants from
