  • Exploring the Bible

    60 Highland St: Sanctuary
    Tuesday, December 18, 2018 - 10:30am to 12:30pm

    with Dr. Sanford Goldfless
    Meets weekly through May

    In this class we get familiar with the Jewish Bible (the Tanach or Torah, Prophets, and Writings) by reading it in English and discussing large parts of it together. We often look at the biblical text from a historical perspective, and we always pay attention to the literary features of the text that are essential for conveying its meaning. We also enjoy conversation about the course of Jewish history and culture through the ages.

    The class is very low key and interactive and is open to all Dorshei Tzedek members and their friends.

    Cost: $15 per session (fee can be reduced to whatever you feel comfortable with)
    Contact Stan Fleischman at: stanfma [at] gmail.com or 617-332-5433 for more information.
