Congregation Beth David The Phantom Akeidah:The Sacrifice of Ishmael (Zoom)

7:30PM - 9:00PM  


The Phantom Akeidah: The Sacrifice of Ishmael (Zoom)
In advance of the high holidays, educator Aviv Matzkin will guide us on a close reading of the expulsion of Hagar/Ishmael and the story of the Akeidah (the binding of Isaac). Comparing these two stories side-by-side will help shed light on the meaning of the Akeidah. Two structural modes of interpretation we would employ to reveal meaning are: chiasm (in Hebrew אתבש) and “Where have we heard this before?" To Connect Online: pwd=SjQwcDFHQlBIVTlpV1lieWxZVW1qUT09 To connect by phone, call (669) 900-6833, Meeting ID: 988 2820 8625, Passcode: 833236
