Join us on Zoom as we learn with Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg and explore the complex history of Joseph, left for dead in a pit, sold as a slave and finally viceroy of Egypt. Consulting midrashic sources and other commentaries, traditional and modern, we will attempt to trace the trajectory of his inner life.

Psychoanalytic and literary material will aid us in our quest: What happened to the light in Joseph’s face?

Aviva Zornberg’s striking interpretations of the Torah, based on Midrash, literary theory, psychoanalysis and philosophy, have led to the writing of five books and a career as a teacher and speaker of adult Jewish learning around the world.

Avivah’s most recent book, published by Yale University Press, is “Moses: A Human Life” (2018). She is currently at work on a commentary on Leviticus, to complement her works on Genesis, Exodus and Numbers.
