    Back to the Sources : The Joseph Narrative-THUR

    Thu 9:30am-11:15am
    The Biblical Joseph's Journey from favored son to slave to high official in Pharaoh's Egypt has been seen by commentators and mystics throughout the millennia as parallel to the journey of the Jewish People throughout. This year we will take an in-depth look at the story of Joseph as told in Genesis as well as medieval and modern Jewish and non-Jewish commentary. The importance of Joseph's story in the Koran, in Jewish mysticism, in modern literature, in art, in music is multifaceted and profound.

    The Art of the Jewish Short Story-FRI

    Fri 1:00pm-2:30pm
    The writer John Updike noted that "Kafka spoke for millions in their new unease; a century after his birth, he seems the last holy writer, and the supreme fabulist of modern man's cosmic predicament." His stories areso unique for his time, that a new word, "Kafkaesque" was invented to describe them. We will examine the brilliance of his writing that still, more than 100 years later, speak to the condition of modernity and man's place in a perplexing world.
