About the Event

The Jews and Land Study Group is a weekly online gathering to explore a people’s-level history of Jews in relationship to land--from the creation myths of the Torah to the times of sovereignty in ancient Israel, from the diasporas to immigrant farmers in the US. Together we’ll explore books, articles, and other resources on these topics. We’ll learn how we can engage with historical and religious texts in a participatory way, uncovering what stories lie at the grassroots of the past and the truths that endure today. 

As a study group, we will all be participating in the learning and facilitation, and everyone will get an opportunity to shape our discussions through engaging in a popular education model of collective learning. Our hope is to share the knowledge we individually bring to the group, expand into places of interest and mystery, and uncover a level of history that does justice to people who have lived before, who live now, and who will be here when we become the history.

This Season 2 group is for those that participated in the first set of 4 sessions (Season 1) in May 2020.

This course will run on Tuesdays for 6 weeks (06/23, 06/30, 07/07, 07/14, 07/21, and 07/28) from 7:30 to 9:00 PM EST.

The cost of the program will be a sliding scale of $27 - $72 for all four sessions and space is limited to 20 participants.

About your facilitator:  Alex Voynow is a Jewish, land-based educator, organizer, facilitator, and historian. He is a former program coordinator at the Jewish Farm School, and creator of the Jews and Land Study group. His work is grounded in the belief that learning is meant to be a collective, liberatory experience, and that redistributed and decolonized knowledge is a necessary medicine for our movements.
