Shiviim Panim L'Torah: Bereshit
The MJCCA and The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning in partnership with YITH present Shiviim Panim L'Torah - Bereshit, a 10-week class taught by Rebecca Winter on Mondays from 8:00-9:30pm at YITH from Monday, October 12 - December 21.
Based on the tradition that the Torah has “70 faces” or ways of interpreting and understanding it, the curriculum features a multi-faceted approach to Torah study, including Modern and classical commentaries that represent a range of orientations.
This course takes us from the universal tales of the creation of the world, the flood, and the Tower of Babel to the foundational tales of Abraham and Sarah, and the beginnings of the Jewish people. The themes of family and faith, honor and dishonor, passion and power provide a rich exploration of our people and ourselves. This will be a thrilling class you won't want to miss! This class is appropriate for both the more experienced learner and those with more limited exposure to Torah text study.
To sign up for this class please contact Talya Gorsetman at Talya.Gorsetman@atlantajcc.org. All YITH members will receive the discounted price, please be sure to let Talya know if you are a YITH member!
