Wandering and Wondering: More than Just the Numbers

Class. Wandering Wondering.jpg

Presented by Gideon Amir, Master Teacher

The Book of Numbers starts with a census, but as we learn from Albert Einstein, “not everything that counts, can be counted.” How did a nation of slaves form into a unified people ready to inherit the Promised Land? What effects did forty years of wandering and constant leadership challenges have on who we as Jews ultimately became? Explore these, and other unique perspectives as master teacher Gideon Amir guides you through the fourth book of the Torah. We will explore these intriguing themes throughout the year, but there are no prerequisites for any of the trimesters. Additionally, no knowledge of Hebrew is needed.
