Rabbinic Literature of Late Antiquity (Mishnah, Talmud, Midrash) offers a variety of foundation stories, describing the founding fathers of rabbinic culture: Hillel, Shammai, Rabbi Akivah and other sages. These foundational stories constitute the self perceptions of the rabbis and they were subject for continuous reflections by Jewish thinkers, scholars and authors. In the course we examine a selection of rabbinic narratives and consider modern responses to them. We will consider the ways by which modern figures have used this corpus of stories within contemporary contexts, and used them as means for constructing the variety of modern Jewish Identities.

The course will include a Beth-Midrash study element: a dialogical mode of pedagogy of guided study of texts in small groups of students. The course is also open for Israeli students and aimed at creating a place for mutual enrichment.
