Tuesdays with Torah: What’s the Torah Got Cooking?

In this class, taught by Rabbi Goodman, we will explore a number of biblical stories that feature food and their significance in the context of the narrative. From the fruit of knowledge in the Garden of Eden, receiving Manna in the wilderness, to the selling of a birthright for a bowl of stew, and more – there is more material than you might imagine! Through examining these stories, we will gain a deeper understanding of the Torah’s cultural and historical background, as well as the theological and spiritual implications of including food in these pivotal moments of our textual tradition. This class is accessible to learners of all levels of Jewish knowledge.
