From the Voice of God to the Pens of Men: Different Ways of Understanding Revelation

Hosted By: Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

Was the Torah Divinely reveled? Written by men? Join the debate! Is the Torah the word of God, given on Mount Sinai? Or does it contain the words of men passed on through oral tradition? Is the Torah from the Divine or divinely inspired?

Join Yael Weinstein and grapple with these questions as you explore texts in a variety of ways and discover biblical revelation from ancient documents through to modern hypotheses.
