On Shavuot we celebrate the giving of Torah on Mt. Sinai. But how did the Five Books of Moses as a literary document come about? The Torah is filled with parallel and often contradictory narratives and laws. How do we account for these discrepancies? What do they tell us about the nature of Torah and who put it together? More importantly, as contemporary Jews, what larger teaching can we draw from this understanding of Torah?

June 4, Shavuot Morning Services
"Hearing the Voice of  Sinai Today: Women Wrestling with Torah"
Services/Yizkor: 10:00 am
Using The Torah: A Women's Commentary as a guide, we will explore the biblical account of the divine revelation at Mt. Sinai. Our focus will be on Moses' command to "not go near a woman" in advance of this dramatic moment (Exodus 19:15).
