Ari Delevie Bio

Ari is a Sabra, born in Haifa. Hebrew and German are his native languages. He is a retired clinical psychologist, with a doctoral degree from Columbia U. He lived in White Plains, NY, for 45 years.

He was married to Joan for 51 years, who passed in 2011. They have three daughters and seven grandchildren.

Ari worked at mental health agencies and had a private practice. He volunteered with the IDF, treating soldiers with combat PTSD and wrote a book about it (“Coping with Demons of War”) in both in Hebrew and English.

He has been teaching courses about music (he is not a musician) at Pelican Cove, where he lives with his wife, Judie, for the last six years, and a conversational Hebrew class, for the last three years. Previously, he taught a course on the same subject at congregation Hevreh, in the
Berkshires.

Having great interest in art, he has done oil, acrylic and water color paintings, color pencil and pen-and-ink sketches, one resulting in a book about Jerusalem. He sculpts in wood, stone, clay, steel and stained glass. He wrote three books and many short stories.

Judie and Ari create art together; stained glass and wood sculptures, cook, bake and travel.

Ari is looking forward to teaching members of KH some contemporary Israeli Hebrew.

Torah and History: The Hidden Origin of Deuteronomy

Deuteronomy was written by someone from a later age pretending to be Moses. As such, it is the most important literary impersonation ever written. Come learn why contemporary biblical scholars believe this to be true and what it teaches us about how to read the Bible historically. The first session will focus on the story in the Book of Kings of the “discovery” of Deuteronomy. The next four sessions will read Deuteronomy, also known as Sefer Devarim, intensively in light of the context laid out in Kings. This class is aimed at those who are willing to prepare the assigned material with a partner before each session.

Cracking the Book Barrier: Breaking into Four Primary Jewish Texts

Instructor: Ellen Frankel

Course Description

Jewish literacy has an extremely high barrier to entry. Classic texts are written in a foreign language (sometimes in more than one), and meanings are often hidden by lots of insider code.

This course will provide an introduction to four ancient classics in the Jewish library: the Hebrew Bible, the prayer book, the Talmud, and the Midrash, each of them constituting mini-libraries in their own right.

We will look at selected texts in English, unriddle their secrets codes, and learn how best to hear their ancient voices with modern ears.

This is meant to be an entry level course, especially for people new to Judaism or intimidated by text study. Advanced students are DISCOURAGED from attending.

Format Four 1.5 hour sessions on Zoom
