How Jews Read the Bible—A Sermon Writing Class with Rabbi David Kosak

Monday, November 1 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Monday, repeating until January 24, 2022

Rabbi David Kosak

The Jewish way of reading the Torah is unique. It is flexible and innovative. It demonstrates tremendous freedom that has protected Jewish culture from literalism and fundamentalism. In this course, we will learn about the lives and history of some of our most famous traditional commentators. In addition, we will study how they went about mining the Torah for meaning and wisdom. We will also learn how to use Sefaria, a remarkable on-line Jewish resource. By understanding this tool, we will quickly be able to access our traditional commentators.

Class participants will be invited to write a sermon applying the insights that we will learn. Those will be delivered to the community on specific Shabbats throughout the year. Class enrollment will be limited to 12 active participants. Taught by Rav D and Merridawn Duckler. Cost: $72 for CNS members, $96 for non-members

To register, please contact Lisa-Marie by email or call 503-246-8831.
