YOU DON’T HAVE TO CAMP, BUT YOU WILL HAVE AN EXTRAORDINARY SINAI EXPERIENCE.
Erev Shavuot on Sunday evening May 17, 7:00 PM
and a morning on Monday, May 18, 10:00 45 AM
On Sunday evening:
Professor Baruch Halpern of the University of Georgia explores the development of the Bible through phases of polytheism, monotheism and the consequential irrelevance of God as a moral force. He audaciously questions the role of the prophets: were they revolutionaries or servants of the central government? When did Moses shift from being God’s cheerleader to the great lawgiver?
He draws on his background as a historian, archeologist, linguist and anthropologist to help us understand how the Torah we read reflects hundreds of years of evolution and cultural interaction.
