JST 630: Wrestling with the Parashat ha-Shavua

This course is intended as an introduction to reading strategies that are useful in studying the Bible, and particularly in composing a short public speech about a section of the Torah, a devar Torah. The course will survey some of the most important reading strategies that are most common in the modern Jewish community and particularly those that do not require special additional expertise, such as either rabbinic expertise or Orthodox Jewish expertise or academic expertise. The strategies that are discussed in the course are open to most readers and not difficult to carry out.
