More about the course

The Book of Judges tells of the prophetic perspective of the disunited confederation of tribes following the conquests of Yehoshua. At times the tribes succeed in warding off external enemies, and other times are overly passive. Sometimes the tribes turn against one another in civil war, highlighting the national rifts and polarization. In our weekly shiurim, we will explore the narrative, military strategies, leading personalities and geographical significance as we elicit religious messages from these dynamic stories. We will incorporate classical medieval parshanut and midrashim together with contemporary literary analysis to yield new insights, demonstrating how relevant the prophetic messages are in charting our religious history.
