Make Yourself at Home! Home, Exile, and Return in the Hebrew Bible

Hosted By: Museum At Eldridge Street

Home, exile, and return comprise an overarching theme throughout the Hebrew Bible (and much of Jewish history). From the story of Adam at the beginning of Bereishit (Genesis) to that of the Israelites exiled by the Babylonians, to the return of the Jews to Judaea in the Persian period, reading Biblical stories through this lens opens a whole new perspective on the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible). These stories shed new light on the Tanakh‘s characters and narratives, on us as a human collective, as nations, and as individuals. Is home a place or a state of being? What does it feel like to lose your home? Is homelessness a punishment or an opportunity? What are the costs and benefits of returning home?

Texts will be provided. Participation in this course requires no previous Bible study and no knowledge of Hebrew.
