Scholar-in-Residence Shabbat with Judy Klitsner

Saturday, March 9, 2024 29 Adar I 5784

All Day

We are excited to welcome Dr. Judy Klitsner for a Shabbat of learning on March 8-9. We will have three opportunities to learn from Dr. Klitsner:

  • Shabbat Morning Drasha: Your Brother’s Blood is Crying: Biblical Origins of our Fractured Society
  • Shabbat Lunch (register here by March 5): Noah and Jonah: Similar Stories With Opposing Perspectives on Human Resilience
  • Seudah Shlishit: Five Stages of Post October 7 Grief:  Personal and Biblical Reflections

Judy Klitsner is a senior lecturer in Bible at Pardes, where she has empowered a generation of students to seek meaning and relevance in the text through a skills-based method of learning. Many of her students now employ her methods in educating adults and children throughout the Jewish world. In her classes, Judy weaves together traditional exegesis, modern scholarship and her own original interpretations that are informed by close readings of the text. A disciple of the great Bible teacher Nehama Leibowitz, Judy is a popular international speaker whose teaching style is accessible, interactive and text-based, and she is particularly fond of uncovering the intertextual links– the “vibrant conversation” that takes place between the Bible’s parallel stories. Judy has taught Bible to Christian and Muslim religious leaders and she has served as a regular visiting lecturer at the London School of Jewish Studies. Judy is the author of the acclaimed book Subversive Sequels in the Bible: How Biblical Stories Mine and Undermine Each Other, which received a National Jewish book award.
