In Exodus – Narrative and Law, episode 52 of A Dash of Drash, a professor of bible and a rabbi explore different ways of finding meaning in ancient narratives, as we begin ritual reading the Book of Exodus. Professor Sam Boyd, a guest scholar this Shabbat at Bonai Shalom, is a professor of bible at CU, Boulder and has a passionate and inspiring approach to these texts, their place in the ancient near east and how they can inspire us. This conversation reveals some delightful and surprising common ground between rabbinical and academic interpretations of text.
At this critical time in the history of our Denver Jewish Community and our country, we are hungry to learn the most effective ways to build a strong Jewish Social Justice movement: authentically Jewish, genuinely social and laser-focused on justice.
Congregation Har HaShem, Congregation Bonai Shalom, Scientists in Synagogues, and the University of Colorado’s Program in Jewish Studies and Department of Religious Studies welcome Professor Daniel Matt, renowned Kabbalah scholar and translator, for a series of talks in Boulder.
