Civil discourse is turning less and less civil. Can text study of Biblical stories and their diverse interpretations empower us to engage more constructively in disagreements today? Let’s find out together!
Join Dr. Sharon Pollin and Emily Simon for this 5-week course which will teach us to engage constructively across differences in the spirit of the traditional beit midrash (study hall). As we learn to disagree respectfully over classic texts, we aspire to use this as a model for modern civil discourse.
Course fee: $36 for 5 sessions, financial grants available. Ticket purchase on this platform covers all five dates.
