The Torah’s narrative of the binding of Isaac (or Akeidat Yitzhak) is an powerful, disturbing story that has captured artists’ attention for thousands of years. We’ll study and discuss the Torah text from this week’s parashah (portion) together with traditional, rabbinic midrash (interpretation) and contemporary, North American musical midrashim.

Everyone is welcome!
No prior Jewish study or Hebrew knowledge required.
