“There are a lot of organizations doing political organizing, but I think we’re working on something different here in terms of talking about it as a community. It really struck home for me when we had the Shabbat dinner for gay and lesbian marriage.”

Mónica Gomery brings with her many years of experience studying and teaching Judaism, and is now beginning her sixth year of rabbinical studies at Hebrew College. Mónica's interests include poetry, communal singing, Talmud study, pastoral care, and racial/economic/gender justice. Mónica has been blessed to work as a Jewish educator at numerous institutions, working with five year olds up to ninety-five year olds, as far away as Chile and as nearby as her neighborhood shteibel in Jamaica Plain. Lately you can find her exploring the question of how studying the vibrant, nerdy, deeply radical tradition of Jewish text can enliven us to live bolder, more ethical, and more open-hearted lives. She is thrilled to teach for the first time at Boston Workmen's Circle and learn with all of you!
Beginner and intermediate experience with Talmud welcome! Texts will be learned in English translation with access to the original. No previous courses [or experience with Jewish text] required.
