Friday, March 29, 12-1

This week, we continued our discussion of “Dear Zealots,” the first of the essays in Amos Oz’s collection, Dear Zealots:  Letters from a Divided Land. We focused on Oz’s contention that the essence 0f Jewish culture emerges from two basic tendencies, one moral and one intellectual.  The moral tendency rests on the principle of “cause no pain,” our reverence for the sanctity of human life and a belief in the equality of human worth (we cannot determine “whose blood is redder”).  Oz is concerned that this principle is diminishing in Israel.  The intellectual tendency that Oz emphasizes is the Jewish reverence for books, which he contends passes down the lifeblood of Jewish culture.  By books, Oz does not mean a particular text (e.g. Torah, Talmud, Shulchan Aruch) but rather the fact that our texts are always reinterpreting one another, exploring and sometimes undermining their predecessors to show their ideas in a different light.  Here Oz makes the point that Jews thrive on disagreement, that it is “a vital climate for the growth of a creative life.”

Next week we’ll address any loose ends from Chapter 2, and then move on to a consideration of the final essay in Oz’s collection, “Dreams Israel Should Let Go of Soon” (pp. 109-136).  Please come prepared to share whatever knots you encounter in the text and we’ll see what we can do to untangle them.

Our informal discussion group meets every Friday from 12-1 in the CBI Library.  All are welcome to join us, regardless of their level of expertise or attendance at previous noon study group discussions. Oz’s book is available at a variety of internet outlets.

Out of the texts of the Torah, the Rabbis created teachings bringing deeper meanings to the wisdom of the Jewish people known as Midrash. Each week we will explore some of these teachings based on the weekly Torah portion. We will gain not only an understanding of what the Rabbis were teaching, but how and why they were able to offer these teachings. While there are many compilations of Midrash from different periods in Jewish history, we will focus our studies on Midrash Rabbah.

Y.E.P Multi-Generational Tu-B’Shvat Experience and Open House @ CBI
Jan 20 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Y.E.P Multi-Generational Tu-B'Shvat Experience and Open House @ CBI | Asheville | North Carolina | United States

Each month, CBI’s unique Youth Education Program (Y.E.P) provides an opportunity for the young and young-at-heart to experience, think and learn from each other as we connect the timelessness of the Jewish calendar to the sacredness of the Earth!

On January 20th, the topic is Tu B’shvat.

Meet, Discover and Do

The morning starts by sending teams of adults and kids off on a wild Tu B’shvat-themed Scavenger Hunt. Afterwards, we’ll work through a series of age-appropriate interactive nature rotations.

  • Assemble a giant tree puzzle
  • See how Torah and Judaism are like a tree
  • Create a nature-based skit to share with everyone during the Seder
  • Learn about the role of blessings and add yours to our Community Torah
  • Plant parsley to take home and use during your Passover Seder

For the final 45 minutes, we will come together as a community for a Tu B’svhat Seder that holds life lessons learned from the personalities of plants and trees.

Visitors and Guests Welcome

This program is also a great opportunity for families interested in our Youth Education Program to see what we’re all about. The Tu B’Shvat program is free and open. Meet Rabbi Justin Goldstein and Ken Vallario, CBI Youth Education Coordinator, they;ll be on hand to answer any questions you have. Enroll your child in this dynamic Jewish learning experience. We look forward to welcoming you into the CBI family.

Arrive early so you don’t miss a thing

We’ll start promptly at 10am, so we encouage you to arrive early.

Regardless of your age, CBI’s monthly Y.E.P multi-generational programs enable you to re-discover the beauty and wonder of Judaism through the eyes and heart of a child!

Jewish Meditation & Chant Circle @ Congregation Beth HaTephila
Jan 20 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Jewish Meditation & Chant Circle @ Congregation Beth HaTephila | Asheville | North Carolina | United States

Just as healthy foods nourish us through the blood stream, so Jewish meditation nourishes our “soul stream.” Meditation can be transformative, taking us from the intellectual awareness of ourselves to a deeper spiritual practice that links us to Judaism in the most profound way. Each mitzvah, holy day and cycle of life has its own rhythm, nuance, taste and character. Jewish meditation is a practice of infuing their essence into our daily spiritual lives.

Ready to give it a try? Join us (usually) on the first and third Sunday of each month from 1pm – 3pm. No previous meditation experience necessary.  This opportunity is free and open to all. While CBI’s building is undergoing renovations, we will be meeting downstairs at Congregation Beth Ha Tephila, 43 North Libery Street in North Asheville.

Torah on Tap: The Attraction of Belonging @ Habitat Tavern and Commons
Jan 27 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Torah on Tap: The Attraction of Belonging @ Habitat Tavern and Commons | Asheville | North Carolina | United States

Whether you consider Judaism a religion, culture, ethnicity, social group or stomach condition – the decision to identify and engage with it is deeply personal. Within the same family unit, there are individuals for whom Judaism is a core part of their lives while others will have nothing to do with it. There are those who drift away slowly and many who embrace it more fully as they age.

Of course this is hardly unique to Jews. The same can be said of any religion or cultural group: Christianity, Buddhism, Islam or New Zealand Maori. Some people choose to belong — others decidedly refuse, and still others…meh. The question is why?

During this installment of Torah on Tap, we’ll take a look at The Attraction of Belonging. Join us as we put our ideas and feelings of belonging out on the table and try to understand what makes us tick.

  • Is the need to feel a part of a group simply a survival instinct?
  • Is religion, as Karl Marx would say, simply an opiate to soothe the masses?
  • Is it more enigmatic – a yearning to connect to something we can neither name nor understand?

Habitat Tavern is located on Broadway St., next door to Moog Music Inc. You can find plenty of parking at the back of the building. Torah on Tap is free and open to all. Varying viewpoints are not only welcome, but encouraged. Habitat does not serve food and their selection of non-alcoholic beverages is limited. Feel free to bring in snacks, sodas, etc.

As an FYI: This installment of Torah on Tap will, unfortunately, be our last one at Habitat, which has announced it is closing at the beginning of February. The folks at Habitat have been extremely gracious and accommodating and CBI is grateful to them for hosting us month after month for the last two years. If nothing else, please consider coming out to raise a glass and thank Jefff and his crew for everything. We wish them well.
