Can We Do Magic on Shabbat?

My Session Status

12:45 PM, Sunday 13 Oct 2019 EDT (1 hour)
The Muggle WorldQuestions of the Wizarding World
We know of at least one Jewish student at Hogwarts, but presumably Anthony Goldstein wasn’t the first or only Jewish wizard in all of the world, or even the UK. So what does Judaism look like at Hogwarts? How are various Jewish traditions and rituals impacted by magic? Join us as we delve deeper into the mysteries of Jewish wizarding life, debating the merits of everything from invisibility dreidls to the Kosher status of animals butchered via the killing curse. All levels of knowledge and experience are welcome — we don’t care whether or not you know your lulavs from your latkes, we’re excited to engage your curiosity regardless!
