Shir Hashirim is romantic, symbolic, graphic and erotic. Perhaps surprisingly,
Jewish tradition proclaims it to be "holy of holies" among our sacred texts.
For generations, Song of Songs has been used in the most spiritual contexts
and is read in the synagogue on Passover. Explore the rich and intriguing
language of Shir Hashirim. Listen to musical renditions based on the emotions
stirred by the text. No knowledge of Hebrew is required.

C heck (paya ble to M i dra s ha )



It was one of the most dramatic eras in Jewish history. Between the 8th
century BCE and the 4th century CE, Judaism encountered the great
civilizations of Greece and Rome, with profound and lasting effects on
all three cultures. What adaptation and survival skills did Judaism deploy
as it moved through this dynamic period? This seminar will include text study.
No knowledge of Hebrew is required.
