Shabbat Special: Rabbi Shawna and Isaac Brynjegard-Bialik

Hosted by

Rabbi Shawna and Isaac Brynjegard-Bialik, Paper Midrash

Friday, October 13 (Sermon) - Saturday, October 14 (Torah Study)

Shabbaton sponsored by David Abramson and Lee-Anne Torrens Husband and wife “dynamic duo” Isaac and Rabbi Shawna Brynjegard-Bialik create new pathways into Torah, combining deep Jewish scholarship with comic books and pop culture for a unique take on traditional texts. Isaac cuts up comic books and reassembles them into papercuts that explore the stories of the Jewish people. Rabbi Shawna adapts traditional Jewish concepts to a modern Reform context, and brings that synergy to students of all ages. Together, they are “Paper Midrash.”
