Introduction To Midrash

Hosted By: Torah in Motion

Midrash is ubiquitous in Jewish scholarship, yet often misunderstood. In this course, we will study a range of midrashic sources to acquire basic skills in Midrash study and answer some of the important questions fundamental to the study of Midrash: What is Midrash? Why is it so central to our thinking? Why did the Rabbis write in midrashic style? How are we to relate to the factuality of ‘fantastical’ midrashim?
