Soul Brew Liberation Sessions


Enjoy this series of interviews by Bluth along with Beth Tzedec Congregation, to explore a variety of stories and expressions of Liberation in today’s society.

 

From Toronto to Harlem, Jerusalem to Pakistan  - we hear from a Jewish thinker, queer Jewish musician, racial justice educator, and a Pakistani women’s rights activist - to hear their liberation work, their stories and their wisdom.

 

We gain insights into the pain and joys, the grief and celebration, the exile and bliss of existence, emergence and becoming. Soul Brew Liberation Sessions are replays from 2022.



Episode 1: What Does Exodus Mean Today?


This first conversation with Rabbi Bluth and Dr. Elliott Malamet about how Miztrayim, or Egypt manifests in our personal lives today; distraction, suffering, agency, and meaning; creating the  conditions for freedom. They explore how this relates to us stepping up against real overt and covert slavery in the global community today; how the Seder rituals are a tool for us; and how to liberate the Seder itself - making sure it is indeed different from all other nights, and all passover before it.  




Episode 2: Embodying Liberation


In this session, Rabbi Bluth interviews queer Jewish/Yiddish/Ladino Singer and songwriter Aviva Chernick, teacher of voice as a tool of healing -  about emergence, voice, and Passover.


Min HaMeitzar Karati Yah - “From the narrows, I Call to you” - what is this calling out and what is the role of voice and vocals in liberation?




Episode 3: Reclaiming Honour


In this session, Rabbi Bluth interviews Khalida Brohi, award winning Balochistani activist, Sufi Muslim, founder of Sughar Foundation and author, who has been fighting for nearly two decades against honour killings in tribal communities of Pakistan.




Episode 4: Racial Justice & Dancing to Freedom


In this session, Rabbi Bluth has a vibrant conversation with Leah Tubbs, dancer, founder of MADC, Harlem Based Modern Dance Company.  Leah is a black choreographer that grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, the birthplace of the Civil Rights movement. She shares her journey with unfreedom and freedom, her work to connect people of colour with the ancestral roots of dance, and to create spaces for black and brown bodies to be seen and heard - through dance.




Chag Sameach! May it be a blessed and liberatory Pesach!
