Minyan Ma’or is proud to announced its second class, “Biblical Responses to Ancient Challenges” with Hebrew College Vice President Dr. Susie Tanchel.

In this course we will explore select biblical texts that discuss issues that continue to be relevant today. While many parts of life have shifted since biblical times, elements of the human condition have remained the same. Like our ancestors before us, for example, we need to innovate in certain moments, to balance responsibility with authenticity, to get buy-in for ideas, and to respond to tragedy. Through studying the biblical sources, we will discover both the places of great resonance and the places of disconnect with our current times.

No prior knowledge of biblical Hebrew is required. Please bring an open mind and heart to our discussions.

Classes will be recorded.
