    Wednesdays, 12-1:15pm

    The Ten Commandments states, “You shall have no other god before Me.” The prominence of this command highlights the fact that the people of Israel wanted to- and even sometimes did- worship other gods.  In these sessions we will consider the questions: who were these other gods? Why were they compelling? What sorts of rhetoric does the Bible employ to argue against worshiping them?

    Class will take place at Lincoln Square Synagogue, 180 Amsterdam Avenue, between 68th and 69th Streets.

Support Drisha

At Drisha, people of all ages and backgrounds study Torah in an inclusive Beit Midrash, marked by deeply rigorous and honest learning, a commitment to the Jewish people, and a passion for connecting our study of texts with our individual and communal lives.

I learned what it means to bring your whole self to Torah study. This meant challenging myself and others to formulate an idea honestly and with clarity, grappling with an idea within a previously held worldview, bringing every discipline and insight to the table as a potential tool to understanding, and sharing a joy and enthusiasm with the community of students of Torah that surrounded me.
