Jewish Museum Course

Shiranik Yvonne Fein will be running a course at the Jewish Museum. You can find out the details below.

The Bad, the Bold and the Beautiful: Heroes and Harlots in the Bible

Yvonne Fein – Author, editor and playright

A cast of thousands, a complex plot line, the greatest story ever written! Over eight weeks, we will explore the stories behind the stories in the Torah, including those about Lot and his daughters, Esther and Mordechai, David and Jonathan, to name just a few. These fabulously flawed biblical characters will come to life upon the pages of source-materials they never handed out to you in school. As a class, we will ponder some of the great human dilemmas — good and evil, right and wrong and that fragile membrane which separates the sacred from the profane. When these biblical narratives are placed alongside ancient, mediaeval and contemporary commentaries, they extend an irresistible invitation: ‘Come inside,’ they say  ‘Come inside, like the scholars of old,  and examine the timeless and the universal , the humanity of our ancestors.’
