Jody Hirsh: Bible, Midrash, Art: The Richness of Bible Narratives (Virtual on Zoom)
So many Bible stories have captured our imaginations and have fascinated humanity throughout all the generations: Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Jacob’s Ladder, Joseph in Egypt, Moses on Mount Sinai, and more. We will examine Bible stories as they are presented in the Biblical text itself, dive into traditional Midrash (Rabbinic interpretations that are themselves stories) and examine how artists of all types: painters, writers, musicians, playwrights, poets, sculptors, and dancers, have interpreted these stories. Both traditional Judaism, and more modern art, have deepened the meaning of these deceptively simple tales.
4 sessions, Mondays, April 25, May 2, 9, 16 @ 7:00 – 8:30 pm, Virtual on Zoom
