MIDRASH ON FRANCE
Join us on Wednesday Mornings!
In Judaism, the Midrash is a term given to a genre of rabbinic literature. The purpose of midrash was to resolve problems in the interpretation of difficult passages of the text of the Hebrew Bible, using Rabbinic principles of hermeneutics and philology to align them with the religious and ethical values of religious teachers. Said another way, it’s an approach that guides the following: “God said it. I believe it. Now let’s talk about what it means”
The Wednesday morning group is a bit like midrash; “Midrash on France” if you will, where each week we wrestle with the Bible, with books, with topics of the day, in an attempt to better understand our faith and maybe even more importantly, understand how to bring our faith into our day and our lives. This group has been meeting on Wednesday mornings at 7 a.m. for about 15 years, and there’s always been plenty to talk about! All voices are heard and listened to, and in community we’re able to strengthen and support each other.
All that said, we welcome new voices at all times and invite you to consider joining us. There are really no requirements. No dues! No secret handshakes! Come when you can! For more information on the group or if you’d like to be included on our weekly email, please contact John Mendesh.
