The Bite That Changed History

led by Rabbi Knopf
Thursdays, 1-2 pm on Zoom
The story of Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden is one of the most compelling — and challenging — tales in the Torah. Every passage calls out for interpretation. Join Rabbi Knopf this fall for a journey through Genesis Rabbah, a classic collection of rabbinic interpretations of this famous story. We'll explore a few of these intriguing explanations each week. No prior experience necessary. Attend one, some, or all. Bring an open mind, an inquisitive heart, and a hunger for the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge!
