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?
