Cultural Day 


Ratisbonne Seminary, Jerusalem


Yael Valier will be leading a workshop for Catholic seminarians and clergy in a morning of religious reflection at the Ratisbonne seminary in Jerusalem in a session based on dramatic story analysis and performance techniques. Together, we will examine texts relevant to both religions in experiential ways that will lead to insight not only into the texts but into how differently Jews and Christians experience the same materials.
