A most excellent class [The Bible Now]… which has left my head spinning and returning to reread the texts.
Mazal tov on a great inaugural lecture! . . . loved learning more about Rosenzweig. It was fascinating to hear that so many rabbis had reported that he was such an influential thinker for them – I am not alone in feeling that way! You articulated more of what you hope to achieve, all in relation to Rosenzweig and the original Lehrhaus. Beautiful all around.
I LOVE the [Cultural Memory: Ladino Music and poetry] class. Wow! What a fabulous and interesting presentation! Plus I love hearing the songs. So beautiful. Thank you so very much for teaching this!
The dialogue and occasional teasing between the two professors was delightful. Dr. Hendel’s placing the creation of the texts in historical / social settings added to the depth of the wisdom: real people confronting real human dilemmas.
I love the texts you have chosen and the spectrum of viewpoints on this topic [Torah from the Bedroom]. I especially appreciate BOTH your male/female perspectives on these texts as well.
What a special evening we had last night enjoying and being moved by your Zoom on Hanukkah. I know my mom was smiling as she was a huge Tom Lehrer fan. Between the laughs and learning, music and dance our horizons of Hanukkah were expanded. What a rich culture. The rest of us (non-Jews) are fortunate that so many Jews are so generous in sharing their muses and insights into this complicated world.
… Thank you for what you’ve done for New Lehrhaus. I’m very grateful. Having this community resource is very meaningful (for me personally and, I know, for the whole community). I loved the first session I attended (“The Bible Now’) last week. Looking forward to more.
This class [The Bible Now] was so worthwhile. Please have the instructors back for many more workshops. There’s so much more to learn about the Hebrew Bible
I love, love, love the New Lehrhaus project – so wonderful, such a feeling of community. It came together so quickly – I’m very impressed.
