Time: 12:00

Location: Bennett Center for Judaic Studies, Donnarumma Hall, Room 245, 2nd floor

Fairfield University students, staff & faculty


Join us for a workshop sponsored by the Bennett Center for Judaic Studies


Judy Lerner, who has taught Hebrew at Fairfield University for many years, will be offering a workshop this semester on SERVITUDE TO LIBERATION: The Exodus Narrative and the Creation of Cultural Memory


This workshop, we will examine biblical texts describing Pharaoh’s cruel edicts against the Children of Israel, Moses as a leader and spokesman, the plagues, and the Exodus itself. We will ponder the narrative's historicity, its moral and theological messages, and its significance, past and present. Rabbinic commentary and source critical analysis will be discussed.


A light lunch will be served. RSVP by Monday, March 11 to Jennifer Haynos (jhaynos@fairfield.edu or x 2066)
