Description

In reading the narratives of Tanakh, we are usually hampered by our foreknowledge of the conclusion of the story - and miss much of the drama and suspense which we were meant to experience. Based on the recent work of Dr. Tamar Verdiger, we analyze the "courtship" of Yaakov and Rachel against the backdrop of the "Wooing of Rivkah", using anticipatory reading to guide our study. Using the prior story as the basis for what we should expect, we gain a deeper understanding of the nuances of the later story and how our expectations are met - but not fully. This shiur was given in memory of our dear friend, Anne Samson z"l, on the occasion of her 6th Yahrzeit. יהא זכרה ברוך
