In the five 2024 winter/spring sessions participants will learn selected Bible texts and stories. Berit will give a colorful overview of the 24 books (from Genesis to Chronicles) that comprise the Hebrew Bible and the division of the text of these books into chapters, verses, and other smaller units, with a focus on how to find one’s way in our holy book. The last session will explore facts about the Torah scroll and its beauty.
