Rosner’s Torah Talk: Bamidbar with Eliana Rubin

[additional-authors]
May 13, 2021

Eliana Rubin is a queer and trans artist and educator. She aims to help people better understand themselves and the world around them through Jewish, LGBTQ+ and theatre education. Eliana is currently a candidate for a Masters of Educational Leadership at HUC-JIR, with an expected graduation date of May 2022. She received her BFA from NYU / Tisch (ETW). Eliana is a musician, with her first album expected to be released this fall. She will never say no to a bag of movie theater popcorn.

This Week’s Torah Portion – Parashat Bamidbar (Numbers 1:1-4:20) – is the first portion read from the book of Numbers. The Parasha tells us about an elaborate census of the tribes of Israel conducted by Moses in the desert and continues to discuss the priests’ ceremonial duties. Our discussion focuses on the need to find meaning in one of the most boring texts of the Torah.
