Description

In this deep and thought-provoking conversation with Matan Lecturer Dr. Tanya White, we speak about the ethical, religious, and familial ramifications of Avraham’s near sacrifice of his son.

For more from Dr. Tanya White on this idea, see her TOI blog post:

Our episodes on the book of Breishit focus on family and interpersonal dynamics.  These conversations are candid, insightful, and respectful.  We aim not to psychoanalyze the biblical figures, but to learn from them as we stumble through our own beautifully messy lives.
