La’ad Dance stems from a Rabbinic acronym commonly used by commentators to introduce their opinions as it stands for “L’fi aniut da’ati”(in my humble opinion). As an English acronym, La’ad stands for Learn. Ask. Analyze. Dance.
In addition to hosting a Beit Midrash in Motion worshop, you can add a performance component brought to you by La’ad Dance.
