Bereshit I - artwork by Darius Gilmont

Explore the first book of the Torah — from the creation of Adam and Eve to the story of Abraham and Sarah, including the very first sibling rivalry that ended in murder. Over ten sessions, we’ll discuss multiple universal narratives which serve as the foundation of the Jewish faith. Leaners will gain insight into the story of the flood, the Tower of Babel, and much more. We’ll examine the themes of family, faith, honor, and power and discuss how these stories have influenced our people — throughout history and to this very day.
