Mikraot G’dolot

Students will learn to listen to the different styles and voices within Biblical/Rabbinical/Hassidic/Zoharic interpretation through the lens of the hermeneutics of PaRDeS, encompassing the full range of understanding, from the contextual to the hidden.  Focus is on use of Mikraot G'dolot as a rabbinic tool: reading, translating and analyzing scripture and the commentaries. In addition to building an understanding of the arguments of the classical commentators, students will develop their own "inner commentator."  Biblical Hebrew I and II (or equivalent) is required along with some ability to read without vowels.
