Friday morning 9:30 -10:30
Rabbi Levi Cooper
Scholars who have studied Hasidic tales have often done so by focusing on antecedents of the tale, tracking the genealogy of the story and possible precedents. In this series we turn the tables, focusing on how the retelling of a particular Hasidic tale reflects theological conundrums, communal challenges, or personal narratives. How does the retelling of the story reflect cultural, religious, and communal contexts?
