Coming Up At Davar

First Time Scholar in Residence at Davar
Dr. Erin Leib Smokler
November 4 - 5
Existential Torah: From Birth to Brokenness in the Jewish Tradition

Friday night 5:35pm
talk #1 -- Imagining the Unknown: Pregnancy and Parenthood in the Mind of Chazal
Religious life is, paradoxically, both an assertion of mystery and an attempt to flatten it--to name the things we cannot know. Walking this line is a challenge, one that is manifest in many writings of Chazal. Through the lens of pregnancy--the unknown carried within the body--we will explore some ways that our tradition reckons with that which we cannot see. 

Shabbat morning 8:15am
talk #2 -- On Theological Vertigo: Reckoning with Rupture and Reconstruction 
How does our tradition conceive of loss, both personal and communal? How does it articulate the emotional and spiritual layers of rupture? How do life's challenges deform and re-form our worlds? What language might our tradition offer to think about disorientation and re-orientation toward life? 

Shabbat afternoon 5:00pm
talk #3 -- Broken and Whole Pieces: On Second Chances 
The Talmud teaches that the broken tablets and the whole tablets were both preserved within the Ark. How might this metaphor guide our own thoughts about the significance of brokenness and even of destructive acts? Through the lens of marriage and divorce, we'll explore the possibility of reconstruction out of deconstruction.
