Brotherhood & Sisterhood in Israel

Brotherhood & Sisterhood in Israel

Halacha (Jewish Law)   Wednesday at 8:00PM

When do you bear guilt for someone else’s sins? When can you recite a blessing or perform another mitsva for the benefit of someone else? The sages teach us that all Jews are mutually responsible for each other; kol yisrael areivim zeh lazeh. This principle has ritual implications (performing mitsvot for the benefit of others) and ethical implications (bearing responsibility for the sins of others). Source texts are in Hebrew. In class we will translate and explain the sources.

The Bold and the Beautiful: A Study of Women in Tanach

The Bold and the Beautiful: A Study of Women in Tanach

Chumash (Bible: Torah)   Wednesday at 9:00PM

Did Sarah share her husband’s devotion to God, or was she just a secondary figure along for the ride? What motivated Esther to finally take charge and save the day in Shushan? What do traditional rabbinic scholars think of surprising heroines such as Rachav, Devorah, Yael, and others? In this course we will engage in close study of the Bible's accounts of these and other women, developing our own insights while examining the insights of a range of classical commentaries spanning the full history of Jewish Bible study and interpretation. Some of these women are famous; some less so. Some are heroic; some perhaps not so heroic. Some are beautiful; all are bold, often taking action in unexpected ways. Together, we will develop our appreciation of the depth and complexity of these women and their contributions.
