Book Launch: Torah Told Different: Stories for a Pan/Poly/Post-Denominational World

 Congragation Sha'ar Zahav, San Francisco, Book, December 18, 2016
Celebrate Andrew Ramer, CSZ member, liturgist, and midrash writer, and his new book at his launch party. His newest book tells the story of a parallel reality where a third temple rose and fell in antiquity, women were ordained in the fifth century CE, and alternate sages and texts ripple in and out of the ones we know from history.

Torah Told Different reinvents Jewish history, as well as his own family, the Talmud, and the Hebrew Bible, adding excerpts from texts by some of our ancient women sages, inviting you to ask yourself, "What does it mean to be a Jew in the twenty-first century? What grounds me and guides me in our tradition? And what gives me hope and dreams in a troubled world of trembling possibilities?"
