Melton: Between the Lines: From Text to Life - In Person Only
Jewish texts have informed Jewish thought and practice for over 3,000 years. But how do we connect to words written so long ago? What do they reveal today? And how do they inspire action? In this course, we will examine the many ways that we bring the words of our texts into our daily lives. We’ll look at the hints and clues in the letters of sacred Jewish texts: the Torah, the Prophets, the Talmud (no previous Hebrew knowledge required). We’ll exam structure and authorship. We’ll discuss the commentary of yesterday. We’ll share where we stand today. Dive into a sea of knowledge!
Instructors: Rabbi Peter Berg & Rabbi Loren Filson Lapidus
Dates: Wednesdays, February 8 – March 15
Time: 10:00-11:30am
Cost: $80
