With the current political turmoil hopefully behind us by spring 2017, you won’t want to miss this timely and stimulating text study series led by Maureen Mintz.
January 31, February 7 and 28 and March 7, 14, and 21, all Tuesday evenings. Snow/make-up date February 28. 7:45pm.
Learn about the 1200 B.C.E. political shenanigans and crazy wheelings and dealings… no king in Israel… a crowded playing field of (mostly) ineffectual leaders… political turmoil… inability to build consensus… hostility from within, rivaled only by the hostility from foreign nations. Here’s your chance to dive into the Book of Judges – a book that bridges the conquest of the land of Canaan (the book of Joshua) and the establishment of a king in the land (the book of Samuel). Our studies will include text, Midrash, art, and poetry. All texts will be provided in Hebrew and English. No previous knowledge of Tanakh or Hebrew is necessary. See if you agree that the more things change, the more they stay the same!
A donation of $36 is suggested to support the great programs of TI Adult and Family Education. (Additional donations are always welcome, and cost should never be a reason to stay away!)
