Revelation and Revolution (Exodus / Shemot Part II)
This course follows the development of the emerging Jewish nation from their awe-inspiring encounter at Sinai through the building of the tabernacle in the wilderness. The high points of divine revelation are sharply contrasted with the low points of the Golden Calf incident and overarching sense of despair. The text addresses many of the laws and regulations that would later bring great meaning, purpose, and relevance to our lives.

Day and Time: Wednesdays, 10:00 - 11:30 am Eastern via Zoom
Dates: February 3 - April 21, 2021
Faculty: Dr. Sandra Lilienthal

Members of the Tribe
In this short six-session quest, we’ll dive deep into a fundamental, challenging question for Members of the Tribe: “What is the overarching purpose of Judaism?” Together, we’ll examine aspects of what might be considered the Jewish mission, a blend of practices that distinguish us as Jews, and what to do with this idea of being called the "Chosen People." Prepare to explore how Big Jewish Ideas and lessons from our history serve to enrich our collective actions as individuals and as a people.
