Course Description

In this course, we will explore what Midrash is and how it works, through close reading of midrashic texts from different genres, including parables, midrashic stories, and midrashim which draw comparisons between different biblical texts.  Among the questions we will address are:  Is there a method to Midrash?  Is Midrash fact or fiction?  How has Midrash shaped the collective Jewish mind?
