Avivah Zornberg – The Pit and the Rope: Joseph and Judah

Hosted By: Temple Israel of Boston

Join Temple Israel of Boston on Zoom as we learn with Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg and explore the complex history of Joseph, left for dead in a pit, sold as a slave, finally viceroy of Egypt. Consulting midrashic sources and other commentaries, traditional and modern, we will attempt to trace the trajectory of his inner life. Psychoanalytic and literary material will aid us in our quest: What happened to the light in Joseph’s face?
