Filling Gaps and Fulfilling Visions: Midrash and the Rabbinic Imagination

Hosted By: Hadar

How can midrash — even the seemingly most outlandish, unexpected stories – give us a more sophisticated understanding of biblical texts? Join Hadar for our Fall Lecture Series with Rabbi Ethan Tucker as we visit and revisit familiar and obscure narratives, with an eye toward making sense of rabbinic midrashim which, on the surface, seem fantastical. We will read these stories closely to gain a deeper understanding of both the biblical text and its characters, while also appreciating midrash as a strategy to read and make sense of extraordinary biblical texts.
