|Recurring Event (See all)

“Almost Lost in Translation: Five Jewish Stories from the Septuagint” taught by Dr. Melanie-Prejean Sullivan

Thursdays from May 9 until June 6, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in-person

Why is the Hanukkah story in some Bibles, but not the Tanakh?  What other stories of Jewish heroes and heroines (like Judith) or other gems of advice (from Solomon and Sirach) are out there?  Join us for a look through the Septuagint (A.K.A. “LXX” or Apocrypha) and discover what it might mean for us today.

This class will require an additional textbook. Please visit the registration page below for links to preferred editions.
