Ani Yosef: I am Joseph is an exploration of the character of Joseph through Biblical, midrashic, and contemporary literature. Through our engagement with core texts and off-the-beaten-path ones, we will get intimate with the Joseph story and its many teachings about issues that are just as relevant today as they were in the Bible: parental favoritism, the far-reaching consequences of youthful mistakes, assimilation, emotional repression and release, and much more. This is a course for folks who like to read closely, think deeply, and speak reflectively. Our time will be spent in patient reading and thoughtful conversation. Note that the course takes place on five Sunday mornings over six weeks (i.e. there is a skipped week in the middle).
Hebrew College Open Circle Jewish Learning is for learners of all backgrounds.
