The stories of the Torah are not just stories. In the hands of the rabbis of the Talmud, they become sources of meaning and norms. Join Rabbi Jane Kanarek, associate professor of rabbinics at Hebrew College, and Rabbi Gordon Tucker, rabbi at Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y., for a discussion of the origins of and future directions in Jewish law. The event is a celebration of Rabbi Kanarek’s new book “Biblical Narrative and the Formation of Rabbinic Law.”
