Course Description

In a small, intimate setting, collaborate with Yael on a creative new project in which topics in Biblical thought are fleshed out for the modern reader through imagined dialogues with Biblical characters. Become more careful readers of pshat, more inspired readers of subtext, and develop an appreciation for the potential embedded in Biblical lacuna.
