Rabbi Marc’s Dash of Drash: Exodus – Narrative and Law

Professor Sam Boyd

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.

Happy 2018
Rabbi Marc
