Literary Readings of the Weekly Torah Portion

In every Torah portion, there are issues related to our lives in the here and now – subjects that literature and poetry regularly address – parent-child relations, relationships between men and women, social classes, money and the distribution of resources, faith, morality, and justice.

This is a series of intimate encounters with the best Israeli writers that offers an opportunity to look at these subjects from a literary point of view.

Moderated and organized by Shiri Lev-Ari, literature and communications scholar | Wednesdays at 20:00
