Explore the interpretative traditions of Jewish texts.

Course dates: Thursdays 11, 18, 25 June and 2, 9, 16 July 14.00 – 16.00

Inspired by our exhibition ‘Hebrew Manuscripts’ this 6-week course explores the history and interpretations of key Jewish texts. We will discuss the significance of The Talmud, The Book of Esther and several others, and thinking about how Jewish texts continue to bring Jewish teachings to life. Through visits to the exhibition, lectures and group discussion, participants will learn about interpretive traditions, and how and why Hebrew manuscripts were written and understood by generations of Jewish people.

This course is taught by Rabbi Debbie Young-Somers.
