The Book of Ruth is one of our greatest stories. Rich in imagery, personalities and spiritual emergence, it is an ideal text to engage with the techniques of bibliodrama for an in-depth exploration of the lessons that each of us can discover about ourselves and our world. This workshop will start with a bibliodrama—a deep experiential and expressive form of studying a text through role-play. We will explore the unspoken words/feelings/thoughts of the biblical figures through our own filters and let it resonate with our own life stories. Using spontaneity, creativity, role-playing and a close reading of the text, we will shed light on both the text and ourselves.
No prior dramatic experience or knowledge of the text is needed.
Shir Yaakov Feinstein-Feit will provide leadership for creative and joyous Shabbat services.
