Myth and Midrash: Monthly Discussions

Join us for monthly discussions over lunch (bring your own dairy lunch) as we learn about Jewish values and tradition through Jewish children’s stories! Using children’s literature to introduce a variety of topics of Jewish interest, we will review books and examine the history of where the stories originate, study Midrash and other folklore that connect to the stories and highlight Biblical references. Discussion will be led by Temple Emunah congregant Rose Myers.

Meet us in the Rubenstein Conference Room on Wednesdays at noon on the following dates: March 18, April 22, May 27, 2020. Questions? Contact Rose Myers: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or see our flyer for more details.

The topic for the March date will be b'reisheet (in the beginning): Creation and Adam and Eve (and Lilith) in the Midrash, folklore and modern retellings and commentaries.
