Owning Midrash: Exploring Personalities in Tanach through Traditional and Contemporary Midrash

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is the difference between traditional and contemporary midrash? What do these new layers of meaning add to our understanding of Biblical personalities? We will confront our preconceptions of these characters by exploring traditional midrash and the midrashic poetry of the late Enid Dame, and end by crafting our own midrashic responses.
