Webinar: Torah Alive: The Great Jewish Literature No One Knows

The period between 586 BCE and 70 CE saw a flowering of Jewish writing that resulted in new kinds of literary production that set the tone for Midrash and Talmud that followed. In this session we will look at a few examples of this fascinating literature, including works from the Dead Sea Scrolls, and discuss what contemporary Jews can learn from both the texts themselves and the interpretive processes that developed in this crucial period.

Presenters: Joan Glazer Farber and Rabbi Aaron Panken
