Re-Conceiving Abraham

The Contested Legacy of the First Patriarch

Interactive, Text & Thought

For thousands of years, the question "Who is Abraham" has received multiple and radically divergent responses. In this chevruta-style learning session, we will encounter some of these answers as we encounter various textual portraits of the founding father of three great faiths, and pose the additional question: How can his story inform our own?
