What does our tradition teach us about G-d’s body?  Does G-d have a body, multiple bodies, or no body at all? What are the beliefs and contradictions, in Jewish theologies of the divine body? In this class, we will look at these questions across the prism of ancient, medieval, and contemporary Jewish thought. In addition to ancient and rabbinic texts, we will draw on philosophical texts, modern literature and poetry, visual art & media, and contemporary cultural critique. We will also explore how we might take the learning we do in class into our spiritual practice.

Hebrew College Open Circle Jewish Learning is for learners of all backgrounds.
