The Tales of Rabbi Nahman
Thursday, Apr 12, 2018 - 4:07pm
Hebrew College
$200 per person



The Tales of Rabbi Nahman
with Rabbi Arthur Green and Jordan Schuster RS’18 is being offered on six Thursdays beginning April 12 from 7:00-9:00 p.m..  A non-credit course, the cost is $200/person (no fee for students). Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav (1772-1810) was a Hasidic master who combined intellectual brilliance with a creative and strongly mythic imagination. His Tales are considered classics of early modern Jewish literature.  The course will focus on several of his stories, reading closely to try to penetrate both his intent in telling them and messages that we, his latter-day readers, need to hear in them.  Background reading will be the instructor's Tormented Master: A Life of Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav. Hebrew is not required for this course. However, special sessions, involving the Hebrew texts, will be scheduled for rabbinical students and others who have the requisite skills.

Space is limited. To register, email lrosenberg@hebrewcollege.edu

Torah Godly Play Training
Monday, May 14, 2018 - 8:00am
Hebrew College



Learn the Torah Godly Play methodology at this one-day training session at Hebrew College on May 14. Godly Play is an innovative approach to religious education that seeks not so much to tell stories of faith in order that we will "know" them, but as spiritual action of finding meaning, identity and God through storytelling and listening. The pedagogical ideal of this approach is that, from the earliest age, children are invited to experience and become increasingly aware of the spiritual call within sacred stories and of their own deep response as something naturally afforded by religious narrative.
