A Bride for One Night

In her engaging book, A Bride for the Night, Ruth Calderon rewrite Talmudic tales as richly imagined short stories, affording the reader an entrance into the fascinating world of this core ancient text.  We will read the stories in their original in the Talmud as well as reading Calderon’s retellings of them.  We will embark on an imaginative journey into the world of the Talmud and get to know it in new and surprising ways.  No background or Hebrew necessary.  All are welcome.  Zoom only — zoom link will be sent to participants upon registration.  To register, email office@bnaijacob.org or call 203-389-2111.
