2016 Spring Education Series

One Biblical Sentence as a Window to a World

Literary scholars sometime look at the first sentence of a book as a window into the whole story: for instance, do you recognize "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times?" In this mini-series, we will take the first sentence of each of the five books of the Torah and use it as a window into that book. Even one word in Judaism can open up such riches for spiritual exploration and discovery. Just imagine what we can find in a whole sentence!

The following sessions have been scheduled:

  March 13 Genisis

April 17 Exodus and Leviticus
  May 15 Numbers and Deuteronomy

All sessions will be held at William Penn House, 1919 Chestnut Street, in the Community Room
