Midrashic Meetings with God: Encounters with the Divine in the Literature of Chazal

Rabbi Tali Adler

4 Sessions: Jan 22, Feb 5, Feb 19, and March 4

11:15am - 12:45pm

$150 (Need-Based Reduced Tuition is $75)


How do the rabbis envision God--and what do we make of the fact that they quite literally envision God at all? In this class we will investigate midrashim that center around encounters with God. We will ask ourselves: what might we learn from chazal's stories about God's appearance, emotions, daily activities, and relationship to humanity? What can we learn about how chazal related to God? And how might we, through studying these texts, open our own relationships with the Divine?

A Close Reading of the Haggadah

Rabbi Elie Kaunfer

Mar 25 and April 1

11:15am - 12:45pm

$75 (Need-Based Reduced Tuition is $37.50)


In this class, we will delve into one of the most-read but least-understood Jewish texts: The Passover Haggadah. By examining the background sources and different versions, we will develop a deeper understanding of the Haggadah: its structure, meaning and flow.

Interpreting Jewish Prayer: A Collaborative Workshop

Rabbi Elie Kaunfer

Jan 23 - Mar 26

Thursdays: 3:30pm - 5:00pm

$200 (Need-Based Reduced Tuition is $100)


In this interactive class, we will take the raw materials of the siddur (Biblical texts, alternatives versions of the prayers, midrashim, and Talmudic narratives) in order to come up with interpretations for a number of blessings in the weekday amidah. Students will gain skills in building their own interpretive strategies that they can apply to other prayers beyond those we work on in this class. Ultimately, we will form an interpretive methodology that invests ancient prayers with more personal meaning.
