Enter Laughing; Exit Stage Left: Does the Bible have its Own Set of Stage Directions?

Thursday, December 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

We are all familiar with those words in italics that tell us how to read, or to speak, the playwright’s lines. In our close readings of a variety of biblical texts, we will note that the Bible has its own subtle set of stage directions, which provide much meaning between the lines of the text.

Judy Klitsner is a senior educator at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem, where she has taught Bible and biblical exegesis to a generation of students, of whom many now serve as teachers and heads of Jewish studies programs throughout the Jewish world.  A disciple of the great Torah teacher Nehama Leibowitz, Judy is a popular international lecturer, who brings an accessible, text-based teaching style—with an eye toward modern relevance– to a myriad of audiences that span the denominational spectrum.  Judy Klitsner is the author of Subversive Sequels in the Bible: How Biblical Stories Mine and Undermine Each Other, which won a National Jewish Book Award. She is the founding board chair of Sacred Spaces, an organization that seeks to address abuses of power in Jewish institutions.

There is no fee, but please RSVP for planning purposes. This event is held virtually on Zoom. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the event. For more information, contact Program Director Ilene Tatro at itatro@cbisd.org.
