Narrative Midrash: Pirkei d'Rabbi Eliezer: 
The Power and Relevance of Rabbinic Stories for our Lives
with Rabbi Norman Cohen, Ph.D.

Please register for this session below. Lunch will be provided and sponsored by the Resnick Fund.

The rabbinic recreation of biblical stories, referred to as Narrative Midrash, has been the most widely read, published and popular rabbinic texts over the centuries. In focussing on the powerful stories about the lives of biblical characters, these interpretive texts touched their readers deeply as human beings searching for meaning in their lives. 

Come along on our interpretive journey as we immerse ourselves in Abraham's conflicts regarding his son Ishmael, Jonah's struggles with God's commands and Rabbi Eliezer's difficult relationship with his wealthy father and his brothers. Let us see how the power of their experiences can help us on our own personal journeys.
