Paper Midrash Project with Isaac & Rabbi Shawna Brynjegard-Bialik*

Isaac & Rabbi Shawna Brynjegard-Bialik have a powerful one-two punch, bringing together contemporary art, pop culture, and scholarship in “Paper Midrash”—and they’ll be bringing it to San Antonio for programs and a hands-on papercutting workshop: studying text, cutting up comic books and making Midrash art.

Rabbi Jonah Pesner*
Director of the Religious Action Center (RAC) for Reform Judaism

How have the Prophetic ideals of Tikkun Olam and social action evolved over time in the Reform Movement? What is our responsibility to partner in creating a just world in the 21st Century and beyond? Engage with RAC director Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner to hear about the work of the Religious Action Center and how our voices matter.
