Leaping lovers!: The imagery and Poetry of the biblical text of Shir Hashirim. This session we will begin with a brief introduction to the Song of Songs and hypotheses regarding its inclusion in the biblical canon. We will then explore the shape and major motifs of Song of Songs. We will ask: how do the poems in Shir Hashirim talk about love? How do they portray the dynamic relationship between the lovers?
Dr. Elsie Stern, a scholar and teach at the Reconstructionist Rabbinic College. Dr. Stern’s first class on March 22nd will be by Zoom video, so stay in your pajamas and enjoy your bagel toasted and coffee hot. The Zoom link will be sent out a few days before the class.
If you have a chance read and enjoy the beautiful poetry of Shir Hashirim beforehand.
