That's Funny - You Don't Look Gnostic!

Join us Sunday April 10th from 3:00-5:00 p.m to explore Gnosticism with Rabbi Andrea Cohen-Keiner. 

Gnosticism is the shared root of Jewish, Christian and other ancient Mediterranean faiths and cultures. But just what exactly is shared between these various religions? What is Gnosticism? How is it embedded in Jewish text, life and practice today?  During our afternoon with Rabbi Andrea, we will explore the core concepts of the Jewish mystical tradition and its Gnostic roots. We will ask what the core insights of this tradition are, and how it is reflected today in our communities.  As these principles draw us into a deeper understanding of our own beliefs and practices, we will also gain the ability to have meaningful interfaith dialogue with others.

Andrea Cohen-Kiener life-long activist, teacher and Jewish leader, is the rabbi at Temple Israel in Greenfield MA. For ten years, Andrea led the Inter-Religious Eco-Justice Network, a CT faith-based initiative in environmental theology and practice, while serving as the spiritual leader of Congregation Pnai Or of Central Connecticut. Prior, she was the director of Midrasha Community Hebrew High School in West Hartford and spent a two year sabbatical in residence at Rochester Folk Art Guild. Delegation leader for the Compassionate Listening Project, Andrea has led citizen delegations to Israel and the West Bank and leads a monthly CL practice group at Temple Israel, Greenfield. She has degrees in Hebrew Literature, Secondary Education and Pastoral Counseling. She is the author of several books, including a rich translation of B’nai Machshava Tova, by the martyred Rebbe, Kalanymous Kalman Shapira of the Warsaw Ghetto.
