“Witches & Brews” in Orange County

Last night, I led a conversation for with young adults about witches in the Jewish Bible in Orange County as part of my newly-relaunched “Bible & Brewery” series for Southern California Jewish Young Adult Enrichment.

With “Witches & Brews”, we met at Bootlegger’s Brewery, which has a nice outdoor patio with picnic tables, and discussed various prohibitions in the Torah about witches, followed by a couple of stories about Jewish kings in the rest of the Bible.

Curiosity about later events concerning witches in Judaism has yielded, to popular demand, a follow-up event on Monday night to discuss rabbinic approaches to witches.

Having spoken last month about the High Holidays (in the Torah) in Placentia, this is the second consecutive monthly “Bible and Brews” event, wherein I lead discussions on Biblical pieces with young adults (20s-30s) at different breweries in Orange County and Long Beach.

Last night, I led a discussion for young adults regarding Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, the “High Holidays”, in the Torah. ┬áPart of my “Bible & Brewery” series, visiting different breweries in the greater Orange County-Long Beach area, while exploring Biblical sections, this event took place at The Bruery in Placentia.

Young adult attendees came from Long Beach, Anaheim, and Costa Mesa to join in on this conversation, helping them get mentally ready for the upcoming holidays!
