Friday Night Presentation
The Murmuring Deep: Exploring the thought of Avivah Gottleib Zornberg
"My teaching mode (is) exploratory, ironic, open to turbulence, suspicious of fixities" Zornberg, (1996)
Since beginning her career roughly four decades ago, Dr. Avivah Gottleib Zornberg has grown to world acclaim through her writing and teaching, due to her unique inquiry of Torah and its textures, threaded throughout with anthropological, psychological and literary insights. We will experience the ways in which Avivah understands how seeing these texts as 'works-of-art' might illuminate the text of our lives.
Shabbat Morning Drasha
