Shearith Israel / The Spanish & Portuguese Synagogue


In this class we will study the book of Joshua carefully from a literary perspective. Through this study, we will explore core biblical questions: what does it mean to be a disciple, and how can a student turn into a teacher? Can anyone replace Moses? Does Joshua fulfill the Torah’s commands about conquest of the land? What can this teach us about war and the possibility of peace?
