Climate Change: A Traditional Masoretic Approach to an Urgent Modern Problem

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

The Masoretes devised systems to transmit Tanakh to future generations, without changes. Their work is scholarly, full of mnemonics, and playful. We'll see examples from famous Bible Manuscripts, and discuss analogies to the work of climate scientists and activists. We'll each design a page of Tanakh with a "Masoretic" note composed on a climate change theme.
