Bereshit II - Artwork by Darius Gilmont

Take a journey through the heartwarming and heartbreaking stories of the first Jewish family as told in Bereshit/Genesis. Over ten sessions, we’ll dive into biblical tales of palace seduction, wrestling with angels, deception, and reconciliation. These dramatic adventures and the lessons they teach reverberate across the millennia with familiar themes of wrongdoings and reunions. Through the Torah text and the commentaries of our sages, you will gain new insight and deepen your understanding of the trials and tribulations faced by the founders of the Jewish nation.
