Hallelujah: The Life of David and the Psalms with Rabbi Seth Phillips

This first part of a two-semester course will focus on two books of the Jewish Bible: Psalms and Samuel.

Psalms was once the go-to text to consult in times of grief, gratitude, joy and challenge, while Samuel focuses on King David’s rise and fall. The study of David will provide insights into the limitations of power for Jewish kings.

Each class will be self-contained, discussing a psalm and an episode in David's life and will start with one of the 100 versions of the song “Hallelujah.” Students should bring a Tanach to class and a willingness to question the material.

This semester’s course is offered only in person.

$100 PER 10-CLASS SEMESTER
