February 1 @ 1:30 pm - 2:45 pm
Midrash (sometimes referred to as Aggadah) consists of a body of rabbinic
literature which includes Scriptural interpretation, stories, folk wisdom, sermons,
and many flights of fancy. Midrash consists of the non-legal elements of the
Talmud and of later works and collections, We will explore and mine a variety
Midrashim for their world views and values. Through the lenses of Midrash, we will
examine how Jewish literature can continue to speak to us about the issues of our
times: aging, civil society and decency, flexibility vs dogmatic thinking, lying and
falsehoods, Jewish survival. Midrash study makes for eye-opening encounters with
text and for stimulating class conversation.
