With Professor Alan Cooper - Interactive Zoom Class

Close reading of Exodus chapters 12-13 shows that two disparate old festivals were combined in order to create a new one to commemorate God’s miraculous act of liberation from Egyptian slavery, the event that defines Jewish peoplehood. We will undertake some of that close reading together, discuss the possible origins of the two festivals, explain how and why they were interwoven, and examine how the composite text provides us with a script for “when [our] children ask [us], ‘What do you mean by this rite?’” (Exodus 12:26; see also 13:8, 14).

For security reasons, Registration is required for all programs. To register, please send an email with your full name and the Course Code COOPER to: info@thejewishcenter.org
