January 30, 2022 @ 9:30 am – 12:15 pm
via Zoom

Join Kahal B’raira for a Community Gathering, featuring a service, time to schmooze, and an educational or cultural program.

Our favorite Artist-turned-Rabbi, David Berkman, returns to KB to lead us through an exploration of Marc Chagall’s Five Meditations on Love and Loss. Painted in the late 50s and early 60s, these works tell the story of biblical love, as Chagall was lamenting the loss of his beloved wife, Bella. Based on the Song of Songs, these large paintings hang in the Marc Chagall National Museum in Nice, France.

For those who wish to read, in advance, the very earthy and sensual Song of Songs–the only story in the bible that does not mention God–here’s a link to the version to which Rabbi Berkman will refer: https://www.sefaria.org/Song_of_Songs
