10 classes from April 21 to June 23, 2021

Beginning in the days of Rashi, great rabbis began offering peshat interpretations of biblical texts that often deviated from previous midrashic interpretations found in the gmara or in works of midrash halakhah.  In this series, each week we will study one biblical text, either a narrative or a law, where we can see the tension between these new peshat understandings and the older midrashic traditions.
