F16B12 A Taste of Torah: Nibbling the Hidden Gems

Join in as we look at a few of the often overlooked snippets in the Tanakh (the Hebrew Scriptures). We will search out and look at these little gems tucked into the folds of the overall narrative. These are stories that range from one sentence to a few verses: they are easy to ignore, but rich and evocative and ripe for discussion! Come with your curiosity intact, ready to talk about what we read. This class is intended to be a seminar or conversation, not a lecture.

Instructor: Rabbi Joe Blair has served as the spiritual leader of Congregation Beth El in Harrisonburg and Temple House of Israel in Staunton for more than twelve years. He has served as an adjunct faculty member and instructor at various local colleges and universities. He is also a faculty member and Administrative Dean at the Gamliel Institute, where he teaches adult education classes.

Suggested Reading: No books are required, but a study bible may be helpful. Any will do, but I suggest The Jewish Study Bible, Adele Berlin, ed. (Oxford Press).
