From Freedom to Slavery and Back Again: The Biblical Book of Exodus

April 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Adult Education

The exodus of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt is the most important event in the Bible, and it became a powerful model for other liberation narratives. With expert instructor Dr. Regina Stein, you will read the story carefully, analyzing the way it unfolds, its characters and their motives, as you try to answer the simple question: what is the Torah trying to tell us and why?

This course is a continuation from last year. We welcome new students at any time.

You will receive an access link upon registration.

This class will be hosted on Zoom from 11AM to 12PM on the following Thursdays:

Jan 7, 14, 21, 28

March 4, 11, 18

April 8, 15, 22, 29

May 6, 13, 20, 27
