Tuition is $275, but FREE for Shearith Israel members

This class by Drisha Founder and Dean and Covenant Award educator Rabbi David Silber will study the book of Joshua carefully from a literary perspective, exploring core biblical questions: what does it mean to be a disciple, and how can a student turn into a teacher? Can anyone replace Moses? Does Joshua fulfill the Torah’s commands about conquest of the land? What can this teach us about war and the possibility of peace?

Rabbi David Silber is the Founder and Dean of Drisha Institute for Jewish Education. He received ordination from the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary. He received the Covenant Award in 2000. He is the author of A Passover Haggadah: Go Forth and Learn, published by JPS in 2011, and the newly released For Such a Time as This: Biblical Reflections in the Book of Esther, published by Koren Publishing in 2017 (Hebrew).
