Mah La’asot: The Body is a Temple – Are Renovations Allowed? taught by Michelle Barbour
Wednesday, March 10th at 6:00 p.m.
Our body is a temple, and we should treat it as such, right? While many agree on that statement, how people manifest that concept in either “restoration” or “remodeling”, leaves much open to debate. Expression and vanity are common reasons for tattoos and body modifications, however, let’s go deeper. Join Michelle Barbour for a discussion on tattoos, piercings, and plastic surgery and their role in history, our texts and Jewish life.
Join Michelle Barbour, our Jewish Education and Youth Engagement Director.
