Parshat Shemot: Revisiting The “Tzipporah Models”

Join us this Saturday January 18, 2019, 9:45 am in the NOW Room for our second Shabbat Limmud (Shabbat of Learning) of the year.

The book of Exodus begins with a difficult and dangerous political climate that causes challenge and creates change for our ancestors’ families. Jewish families today and formed, and thrive, in an atmosphere that still can challenge their origins. Families formed by intermarriage, adoption, and through a range of partnership models are an extension of the “Tzipporah Model” – Moshe’s wife, Tzipporah, was a daughter of a Midianite priest, and Moshe himself was adopted and brought up by a pharaoh’s daughter

Tefilat Shirah – opening and closing segments of joyous song and contemplative prayer, rooted in the deep structure of the Shabbat morning service

Text Study and Discussion – exploring the legacy of Moshe’s adoption and the contemporary experiences of families formed intentionally across biological, racial, and ethnic boundaries through a close reading of biblical and contemporary texts.

We’ll conclude with song and our usual communal pot luck.
