Imagining Paradise – Begins April 24th

Four Sessions: 4/24, 5/1, 5/8, 5/15

From the very beginning of Hebrew literacy, Jewish writers have created myths and stories of paradise as a desired destination, a blissful place of perfection and sometimes a figment filled with an ironic admixture of hope and despair, faith and doubt.  How have these tales created by the Biblical authors, rabbis of the Midrash, Mystics, Philosophers and Modern writers framed and formed the Jewish psyche from antiquity to modernity?  Readings will include traditional texts in translation as well as writings of Agnon, Kafka and others.

Rabbi Ronne Friedman is Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Israel of Boston. His full bio can be found here.
