DN Academy: “Funny, you don’t look Jewish”: Jewish Cultural Diversity

Monday, 27 October, 2014 3 Cheshvan 5775

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Join us for a multisensory tour of all the different ways to look Jewish, eat Jewish, sound Jewish, and be Jewish. This class will go beyond the “Ashkenazi-Sephardi" divide to examine how Jewish communities have created meaningful and diverse cultural expressions across the globe, from Beijing to Brooklyn, Kiev to Casablanca, India to Ethiopia, and everywhere in between.

Noam Sienna is a third-generation Jewish educator. He graduated from Brandeis University in 2012 with a Master's in Teaching TaNaKh, and has experience teaching Judaic subjects to all ages in a diversity of settings. He is especially interested in how stories in the TaNaKh speak to each other, to other moments in literature, and to our lives.
