• Mas­ter­pieces of Jew­ish Lit­er­a­ture — Seek­ing Midrash: Jan. 16 at 7:30 p.m. One of the most im­por­tant gen­res of rab­binic lit­er­a­ture is Midrash. The word Midrash means “to seek out” and specif­i­cally to seek out the mean­ing of bib­li­cal texts. Al­though there are an­tecedents to Midrash in ear­lier He­brew lit­er­a­ture, it is not un­til the first cen­tury that the early rab­bis fully crys­tal­lize it as a method of Bib­li­cal in­ter­pre­ta­tion. For the last 2,000 years, Midrash has served as one of Ju­daism’s rich­est spir­i­tual re­sources. Cost: $10 per class or $25 for the se­ries. To pr­ereg­is­ter, con­tact Pam at 215-887-8702 or [email protected] ke­ne­sethis­
