Reading Midrash Aggada

(Thur, Summer) This course will take the midrash to Sefer Bereishit, the Book of Genesis, and see how it illuminates the text, both as a deep commentary on it, and as a source for basic ideas in the understanding of the Sages of the relationship between Bereishit and our lives as Jews who serve God. The shiur will be mailed on Thursdays, beginning after Shabbat Nachamu, until Shabbat Parashat Shemot.
