The Rabbis didn’t write a treatise on beliefs; instead they wrote Midrash. What is Midrash, really? Hundreds of fanciful stories, often incomprehensible allegories,
and unexpected commentaries woven throughout the Talmud, seemingly in order to fathom the meaning of biblical texts. But is that what Midrash is really doing, or does it have other agendas?
How are we meant to understand this myriad of midrashim? How can Midrash translate into our lives today?
In this course, we will read fascinating and fun midrashim, examining them from psychological, literary, and theological perspectives
