Book of Proverbs | What Can We Learn

 

Image of Book of Proverbs

By Barbara White
Six session course

The biblical Book of Proverbs contains much more than pithy sayings. What is this text telling us? What is the role of the Book of Proverbs in Judaism? We’ll approach these and other questions through chevruta study (i.e., working together in pairs) and class discussion of a number of Proverbs. Handouts will be from the new translation by Robert Alter. The Hebrew text will be available as well.

Barbara White, a TI member, has taught many classes at the Jewish Study Center, including Basic Judaism and explorations of various aspects of prayer. She has taught several adult B’nei Mitzvah classes at Fabrangen and has presented a TI Shalem program on the poetry of Shirley Kaufman.

Monday evenings, Jan. 6, 13, 27, 10, 17, 24 • 7:30 p.m. • Open to all, no cost
