An Evening of Learning with Dr. Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg

May 17, 2017 Brookline $9.00 - $18.00 0

Like Hearing the Grass Grow: Guilt, Atonement, and Intimacy with Dr. Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg.

Moses’ relation to God takes a poignant turn after the Golden Calf and the building of the Mishkan (Tabernacle). Sin and atonement stand at the center of the drama of sacrifice that is to take place in the Mishkan. But such atonement is possible only for inadvertent sin: Why is this so? And how does this relate to the Golden Calf, and to the new intimacy that Moses, representing his people, enters in his relationship to God?

Dr. Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg holds a BA and PhD in English literature from Cambridge University. For the past thirty-five years, she has taught Torah in Jerusalem at MaTan, Yakar, Pardes and the Jerusalem College for Adults.
