In this four part course, we will meet the greatest commentator of all time on both the Bible and the Talmud. We will study his life and his historical context in 11th century France. We will delve into examples of his interpretive techniques – particularly the interplay between the simple meaning of a verse and rabbinic midrashim on that verse. We will attempt to understand why he became so influential in Jewish study of sacred Scripture, and also touch on his influence on Christian exegesis of the Bible. We will reflect on how Rashi can help us as contemporary Jewish readers of the Bible. Four Wednesdays – October 17, 24, 31, Nov.7, 7:00 - 8: 30 pm. Course Fee: $18. Please register with the shul office.
