Myth and Ritual in Judaism with Dr. Barry Wimpfheimer

February 2 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

  • This event has passed.

Religious Studies scholars have long theorized a relationship across religions between myth and ritual. Most of the examples employed to produce this theory did not come from Judaism. In this class we will consider the relationship between myth and ritual in the Jewish context.
