Imagining Moses: Scenes of Liminality EuARe 2023 Keynote Lecture: Dr Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg. Open to the public. No registration required.

We will explore rabbinic interpretations of central scenes of Moses' life. We will seek to understand his situation and his identity in relation to his origins, his people, his language, his God, and his destiny.

A leading light in contemporary Biblical interpretation, Dr Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg was born in London, raised in Glasgow and has lived in Jerusalem since 1969. She is the author of The Beginning of Desire: Reflections on Genesis (winner of the national Jewish Book Award), Moses: A Human Life, The Murmurung Deep: Reflections on the Biblical Unconscious as well as other books offering her reflections on Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers. Her teaching explores layers of meaning within the biblical narrative, incorporating readings from midrash, psychoanalysis and literary criticism. Before Covid, she lectured widely throughout the Jewish world.

No registration required.
