Jewish Book Club – The Orchard
June 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until June 15, 2021
Instructor: Rabbi Eric Yanoff, Adath Israel Synagogue
Israeli novelist Yochi Brandes assumes the narrative viewpoint of Rachel, the wife of the mystical, at times radical, Rabbi Akiva, in the period just after the destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem. In our sessions with Rabbi Yanoff, we will address: How are history and literature intertwined? What is truth when faith and political divisions are involved? How does an ancient story come to life for us in today’s world? While we encourage you to enjoy this fascinating novel, you can participate in the conversation without having read the book.
