Mondays

Torah, Rashi and Commentaries Mondays 1:30 pm 

The Rashi and Other Commentaries Class at Beth Sholom has been studying the Chumash in depth. We now will turn our attention to The Wisdom Literature of the Torah and the Apocrypha. The Wisdom Literature includes Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Book of Job, some of Psalms, and the Song of Songs. From the Apocrypha we will look at Ben Sirah, the Wisdom of Solomon and the Book of Baruch. We will also discuss the wisdom literature of Israel's neighbors. We will continue to use the extremely wide range of interpreters available.

These include Talmud and Medrash, classical commentaries and modern commentators, translators and academic studies. 

We are currently studying Mishle, the book of Proverbs.
All are welcome to join us on Monday's at 1:30 in the Beth Sholom library for the class. No background in these topics is required.
