Untangling the Psalms

Wednesdays, Nov. 13, Dec. 4 at 8:15 p.m.

Instructor: Amy Schwartz

The 150 religious poems that make up the Book
of Psalms are deeply familiar and deeply strange. Entwined in both Jewish and Christian tradition, they form the backbone of the liturgy and yet speak to us in a modern, sometimes perplexing voice. We’ll read, compare translations and trace the powerful imagery in these works. Readings in English.

Amy Schwartz is president of the Jewish Study Center and opinion editor of Moment Magazine.
