Shel Maala Comes to Portland

Shel Maala, your favorite online queer Yeshiva, is coming DOWN FROM THE CLOUD for the *first time ever*, in partnership with Shir Tikvah of Portland, to offer a weekend of prayer, gay content and shtark Talmud learning in the Pacific Northwest.

The weekend of November 10-12, Rosh Yeshivas Xava and Binya will be flying into Portland to lead all this good stuff at East Side Jewish Commons:

Saturday Torah study and Havdallah are free and open to the public - just show up! Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat is also open to all who register at this link. We cannot WAIT to spend a whole weekend luxuriating in Torah, Talmud and prayer with y’all! You can find detailed information specifically about the Day of Learning here.
