rabbi2Week 1: Introduction to Midrash and the Midrashic Imagination 

What a great first week!  In Wednesday evening and Thursday morning sessions we rediscovered an imaginative,  textured approach to encountering and exploring Biblical texts. The conversation was rich, the questions were amazing, profound, at times playful.  Thank you to those who were able to attend. To those who will join in online, you’ll find the handouts for the first week’s session.  If you have questions or comments, post them in the comment box, and we’ll add to the community of interpretation!
