BeMidbar (Numbers): Leadership Defied and Defended

 

Israel's fateful journey through the wilderness of Sinai presented numerous challenges to the leadership of Moses and Aaron; at times the nation challenged their competence as leaders, and at times individuals arose to challenge their very right to lead. This new Melton Scholars course will survey the dramatic events of the fourth book of the Torah, Sefer BeMidbar, through analysis of biblical texts, artwork and related commentaries, old and new. As students explore the biblical narratives describing forty years of wandering in the wilderness, they will be surprised to note the timeless nature of those stories. How can the lessons learned from the past be applied to solving the communal challenges of the present and the future? BeMidbar introduces significant literary tools often used by scholars in the study of the Bible, and invites participants to revisit and rethink commonly held beliefs about the perceived heroes and rebels of the biblical narrative. This course represents the fifth of seven courses that make up the Shiv'im Panim: Seventy Face of Wisdom Scholars curriculum series.

Day: Thursdays beginning on October 26, 2017 for 10 weeks (no class November 23 or December 28)

Time: 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Vayikra (Leviticus): A Call to Holiness

 Chosen by the rabbinic sages as the first book to initiate children to Bible learning, contemporary readers often perceived Vayikra as inaccessible.  Yet, embedded in the laws that focus on the prescribed sacrificial practices, laws of ritual impurity and purity, and the pursuit of holiness are messages and values that have relevance to the universal condition.  In our study of Vayikra, we will examine themes including the role of rituals, responding to tragedy, confronting birth and parenthood, seeking forgiveness, balancing the place of the individual and the community, bringing sanctity into one's daily life, and more.  Through a textual study of selected passages, this course uncovers the depth and wisdom of the third book of the Torah and reveals its enduring messages that touch our lives to this very day.
