Baderech – The Akeda’s Scream & Thundering Silences: Finding Meaning in Unspoken Word

Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)

Masterclass learning session with a focus on explaining teaching methods.
What transpired between father and son during their three-day journey towards the Akeda? Where did Isaac go at the end of the story? The Bible contains lacunae of all kinds: missing pieces of plot lines, missing words and missing letters. We will explore ways in which the text’s silences are not merely problems to be solved, but are artful agents in uncovering greater meaning in the text.

This session is sponsored by the Blinder Family Educational Fund in loving memory of Betti & Shepsel Blinder z”l and their daughter Judi Black z”l.

This session is for women only. This session is online only.
