New Class for Women

Beginning this Thursday at 11am in the Lower School Library, I will be giving a weekly parsha class for women focusing on the Torah commentary of Rabbi Naftali Zvi Yehuda Berlin. As some of you probably know, Rabbi Berlin, known as the Netziv, was the subject of my doctoral dissertation and has occupied a special place in my intellecual and religious world ever since. My goal in this class is to bring you into his world, to understand the Torah text as he understood it, and to appreciate the creative, penetrating, and insightful mind of one the 19th century's most storied Torah personalities.

For those who can't make it, I will try to record each class and post the recording on the web for all to access. More details on that will follow shortly.

For those who intend to come, please be sure to enter via the school's front entrance and to get a visitor's pass from Aviva at the front desk before heading down to the library.

Hope to see everyone there!
