Taught by Baruch Dauer
Each session is stand-alone, but we encourage you to attend all three.
Tuesday evenings, March 24, March 31, and April 7, 7:00-8:30 pm
In each session of these text-centered classes we will explore a different aspect of Torah through the lens of a Hasidic teaching. The first session will explore Torah as the subject of myth. The second session will address Torah and wisdom from outside of Judaism. The third session will consider the ongoing unfolding of revelation through the Torah that we bring into the world. We will engage with the materials both contemplatively, trying to bring our world and the worlds of the Hasidic masters together, and critically, addressing the limitations and challenges posed by their writings as seen from where we stand today.
Baruch Dauer is a Greater Boston native and a third-year student at the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College in Newton Centre. He completed a BA at Goddard College where his thesis explored the Neo-Hasidic interpretation of Beshtian Hasidic sources. In addition to Judaism, he is passionate about fitness, and loves spending time in nature and with his family and friends.
