Moses in Midrash: Talmudic Tales of a Prophet Like None Other
Not to be outdone by the towering and inspiring portrayal of Moses in the Torah, the rabbis in the early rabbinic period take his character to far off and captivating places that our biblical source text wouldn’t believe. Join us for an in-depth, extended look at Moses through the eyes of our rabbinic sages. In this class, we’ll spend time reacquainting ourselves with the biblical Moses, and with these tools, explore the rabbinic expansions of his character.
Ever wonder what life was like growing up in Pharaoh’s court? What really happened during the episode of the golden calf? Did Moses ever time travel? (Yes, of course). No prior knowledge of Torah or Hebrew required – all are welcome to join as we rediscover a prophet like none other.
