Raising Humanistic Questions in Midrash Sefer HaYashar

Sunday, April 21, 2024 13 Nisan 5784

12:00 PM - 1:30 PMTBE

with Scholar-in-Residence Rabbi Norman Cohen, Ph.D.

Sefer HaYashar provides an engaging rendering of Genesis, the beginning of Exodus, along with the books of Joshua and Judges.  This midrashic collection seeks to further develop biblical characters from a modern perspective, especially the female characters, which become more fully emotive, human and strong.  These dynamic characters speak to us as modern readers and challenge us in a myriad of ways.

Topic: A Rewriting of the Akedah (Binding of Isaac), especially the role of Sarah and the personality of Isaac
