Rabbi Paul Citrin will be teaching a class on "Scripture, Imagination and Vision"
This course explores how Jews have made use of the Bible, expanded its meaning through "what if" thinking, and then developed new ideas and expressed new values. We will look at both ancient and modern texts of imagination (also called Midrash). It is such thinking which has kept Scripture alive and organic, and it is worthwhile to consider this creative process.
The class is scheduled to meet on Tuesdays, 5:30-6:45 PM on 4/29, 5/6, 5/13 & 5/20 at Nahalat Shalom. The cost will be $36 for members and $46 non-members. Please contact the office at 343-8227 to register in advance!!
