Beit Midrash – studying Jewish texts
A beit midrash is a Jewish house of learning and one of the most important rooms of Judaism. But the beit midrash is not only a place but also a way of studying and understanding Jewish texts by being in dialogue with others. It is an approach that requires curiosity, creativity and openness to both old texts and new interpretations. In this course we will develop the ability to read, understand and translate Jewish texts in conversation with others.
This course is for those to wish to develop their relationship to Jewish texts, from beginners to advanced.
