Bewilderments: Reflections of the Book of Numbers

Study of Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg’s book, Bewilderments: Reflections of the Book of Numbers – One of my favorite contemporary Jewish authors is Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg. Her work combines an impressive understanding of rabbinic midrashim, a keen analysis of the Torah, and contemporary psychoanalysis. Her books are unparalleled in her field. I have read them all.

But we won’t start with the first one, The Beginning of Desire. We’ll start with her analysis of Numbers, a book that presents difficulties for any exegetical endeavor but contains some remarkable teachings.

This study will be Live Streamed via Zoom with Skip Moen Saturday 5/08/21 @8am EDT and will continue each Saturday & Sunday morning until finished.

I have collected 196 citations from this book; citations that I will discuss with you. I highly recommend you purchase the book from Amazon Smile, with this link which will support At God’s Table. But if you don’t want to buy it and you still want to participate, my citations will be available upon registration.
