Course Description

This class is dedicated by Joe Rich Leilui Nishmat his mother, Ellen Rich – עתקא לאה בת שרגא שכנא

We will study Parshat Hashavua (the portion of the week), reading rabbinic, medieval, and modern commentaries, with reference also to philosophical and psychoanalytic thinkers.

We will investigate the possibilities and failures of communication, between individuals and between generations, and between the divine and the human, as they are reflected in the language of the biblical text and re-directed in the commentary texts. What stands between us and the other to whom we speak?
