Writing Ourselves into the Story: Torah-Poetry Discussion and Workshop

Thursday, February 4 — 7pm Pacific – Weekly with Leila Bilick

This class will bring us into conversation with some of the better-known Torah stories, like the one about Lot’s wife who was turned into a pillar of salt. To understand the way others have interpreted these stories, we will turn to both rabbinic commentary and contemporary poetry that reference or reimagine these stories.
