Tikkun Leil Shavuot 5783/2023 – May 25

How Do We Read Torah?

For almost 1500 years the Torah has been the foundational text of Judaism, and the efforts to understand the Torah, its laws and ideas, its significance in each generation, continues. What allows for the ongoing act of commentary? How do we accept so many different, even contradictory interpretations? What are the perspectives that over the centuries we and our commentators bring to the text? Join us as we explore the many ways Jews “read” the Torah!
