Course Description

This course will explore the stories in Bereishit that follow Abraham’s life and destiny following his name change and the promise of the birth of Yitzchak (chapters 18-25). We will utilize rabbinic and medieval exegesis alongside literary techniques to mine these chapters for their theological and moral messages
