Course Description: Sacred to Jews and Christians, The Hebrew Bible is viewed by Orthodox Jews and fundamentalist Christians as the word of God and therefore, factual and true. Liberal believers see the Bible as a collection of ancient Hebrew literature. This course will examine the Bible in light of modern scholarship, as well as the people and the historical events which might have influenced it.
Facilitator: Floyd L. Herman is the Rabbi Emeritus of Har Sinai Congregation, which he has served for more than 35 years. He continues his involvement in the Congregation and in the community. He also enjoys golf and food. Rabbi Herman has taught before in our SPICE program on several occasions.
