Living Room Learning by Germantown Jewish Centre, taught by Ellen Frankel

Begins Monday, February 25

Using Howard Schwartz's midrashic novella, The Four Who Entered Paradise, we will look at a tapestry of midrashic and kabbalistic narratives centered around the evocative talmudic story about arba she-nichnesu le-pardes, the four sages who went on a mystical journey, from which only one emerged whole. The course will explore the midrashic imagination and its many modes of expression. Course will meet offsite at a private home in Mt. Airy. Details will be provided upon registration.

Four Sessions:  Mon 7-8:30 pm • Feb 25; Mar 4, 11, 18. Advanced registration necessary, cost is $50 for GJC Members and $65 for non-members.
