Course: Torah Fan Fiction--Midrash

posted Apr 17, 2017, 9:14 AM by Heidi Hoover   [ updated Aug 6, 2017, 6:21 PM by Alice Hyatt ]

Aggadic midrash, sometimes called legend, is a rabbinic method of telling stories to fill in gaps in the terse Biblical text. Our midrash class will look at famous and obscure midrashim, discussing what the rabbis were teaching and how their ideas can enhance our understanding of biblical text. 

Led by Rabbi Heidi Hoover

Five sessions on Thursdays: May 4, 11, and 25, June 8 and 22, 7:00-8:30 pm. $100/person.
