Course Description

The word midrash, is based on the Hebrew root DaRaSH (“search”) meaning “interpretation” .Books of midrash generally share common methods of interpretation, like filling in gaps in biblical stories. Creating thematic or linguistic connections, resolving contradictory verses, words or even letter that might seem superfluous  are assigned a meaning. Midrashim are carefully constructed works of art that often present dramatic stories and poetically constructed passages. In this course we will learn the weekly Parsha with a focus on Midrashim  that hopefully open our eyes to topics and dilemmas that were relevant to the sages and to us as well.

Lecturer: Gina Junger

Course takes place on alternate weeks beginning November 5
