Would you dare open it? Few books may be said to be truly great, even fewer regarded as dangerous. For millennia the Tanach (Hebrew Bible) has stirred debate, war, love, cruelty and hope.
Poets marvel at its passionate and sensual images, scholars are awed by the scope of its tales, while ordinary men and women find 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 Constantia Shul & Claremont Wynberg Hebrew Congregation as we discover Nach (the Prophets and Writings of 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 Ketuvim (Writings) of tanach in 11 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.
