Roots & Branches with Rabbi Kahn

May 21, 2017 - 10:45am to 12:00pm
​If Torah is the novel, midrash is the screen play. Midrash, a uniquely Jewish form of Bible interpretation, fills in the gaps of the Biblical narrative. From wondering how Noah built the ark without anyone noticing (hint: they did!) to explaining how God held Mt. Sinai upside down over the heads of the Israelites, The midrashic tradition asks questions, complicates and enhances our most sacred and best-known texts. 
Roots and Branches is our open-ended, on-going exploration of the central texts and ideas of the Jewish tradition. All texts in English; no homework; no prerequisites; drop-in anytime.
