The most daring book ever written

Would you dare open it? Few books may be said to be truly great, even fewer regarded as dangerous. For millennia the Hebrew Bible has stirred debate, dissension, war, love, cruelty and hope. Men have gone to their deaths with its words on their lips, while believers have fought through all adversity because of its meaning.

Poets have marvelled at its passionate and sensual images; scholars have been left in awe by the scope of its tales; while ordinary men and women have found comfort and courage in its bare, honest accounts of tragedy and restoration.

Is it any wonder that it has been called “The Book of Books?”

Join The Academy in partnership with Linksfield Shul for a chance to explore the Tanach (the Hebrew Bible) in all of its glory and grit and discover for yourself what it is really trying to say and what meaning it has for the modern world. Cover the entire Tanach in 28 weeks and gain insight into its central themes and messages. Learn the history, marvel at the imagery and explore its understanding of G-d, man and this world.
Because a book this daring deserves to be read.
