Chavruta Study with a Partner: Nationhood

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Chavruta means "partnership" or "friendship." We will study in pairs to explore Biblical and modern texts on "nationhood." Chavruta is open to people with all levels of knowledge and encourages us to appreciate multiple meanings of texts. Knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary.
