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.
This Saturday, April 24, we will gather together online at 7:00 pm to say goodbye to Shabbat with a brief Havdalah candle ceremony, a few songs and, if you like, a BYO dessert. Then we will engage in a sure-to-be-interesting discussion of our Jewish identities.
Boulder Center for Judaism is providing a fun Lag B'Omer program on Thursday night, April 29th with bbq choices for the entire family.
