[email protected] Webinar: Gematria
August 12 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
What do tzitzit, Haman and the number pi have in common? This workshop is guaranteed to fascinate you with links between Judaism and math, as well as explore surprising prayer and holiday facts hidden in plain sight. As when one leaves after watching a magic show, people will be curious to discover more mysteries of Gematria and related topics raised during this session. You just need to count up to 613, identify Hebrew letters, have a sense of humor and an eagerness to learn. Be forewarned: This is not a heavy-duty, scholarly presentation, though it will be filled with surprising and educational information.
Speaker: Jerry Silverman lives in Philadelphia and has earned advanced degrees in Jewish studies, Hebrew and mathematics at Gratz College, Temple University and Hebrew University. He has taught all of those subjects in numerous public and Jewish schools to all age groups. Additionally, Silverman has given workshops from coast to coast, combining his love for Jewish and Hebrew topics with his passion for making Mathematics fun and fascinating.
