MaTaRoT Monthly Workshops: December
Jewish Stories and their Influences
Date: December 12, 2023
Time: 12pm – 1pm EST
Judaism, and its strong storytelling tradition, has never existed in a vacuum. Across thousands of years, Jewish stories have come into contact with the traditions and myths of their neighbors and emerged stronger and more fascinating with each passing generation. In this session, we will compare and contrast various Creation myths and try our hand at adaptation.
Rabbi Ben Rosen will be joining the TBE team in July of 2023, following his ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati, where he also received a Masters in Hebrew Literature and the Irwin Engelman Prize for Leadership. Over the course of his five-years of study at HUC-JIR, Rabbi Rosen was honored to serve multiple congregations in the Greater-Cincinnati area, as well as student pulpits in Joplin, MO and New Iberia, LA. He is a proud graduate of The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!), where he received his bachelor’s degree in Political Science with an International Relations focus. Rabbi Rosen and his wife, Tess, share their home with two cats and an ever-growing collection of books and blu-rays. In his free time, he loves to watch (and re-watch) movies, listen to live music, and drink strong coffee.
