The binding of Isaac is both a Torah reading for Rosh Hashana and a central text in the Rosh Hashana liturgy. In addition, it is a foundational text of the Bible. Our class will engage in a close reading of the Akeda, the purpose of the test and its place within the Book of Genesis.
In addition, we will see how other biblical narratives pick up on essential elements of the Akeda and employ this drama as part of their narrative.
Dates: August 25, September 1, 8, 15, 22
