Class Instructor: Herb Levine.

Dates: November 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29

Time:  1:00 – 2:30 PM

Course Description: This course will give students the basic information that a student would gain from a Jewish Studies class at a university. No prior knowledge is needed. From close readings of selected texts, the class will demonstrate how the Torah was composed long after the events narrated in it, by a variety of authors with differing points of view. In four classes, we will explore these points of view and what was of concern to each. The final week of the class will look at strategies for how we can continue to find value in the Torah as a book of wisdom that speaks across the generations to us as contemporary Jews.

Herb Levine loves teaching Jewish Studies to adults. He was trained as a Ph.D. in English and American Literature and taught courses in the Bible as literature and its impact on later literature. He previously taught Mussar as a KH adult education offering.
