Episode 1: Resurrection and Rosh Hashana: Multivalent Perspectives on the Binding of Isaac
Description: There is no story as rich and complex, as troubling and inspiring, as Akedat Yitzchak, the binding of Isaac which is the Torah reading for the second Morning of Rosh Hashana. Akedat Yitzhak is a great story precisely because there are so many ways of understanding it. Like a dream, it can be understood and interpreted on many different levels and in ways that are contradictory and not at all mutually exclusive.
This Rosh Hashana podcast is sponsored by Ricki and David Bernstein in memory of Ricki’s parents, Beatrice and Murray Kirschblat, each a sole survivor of large families which perished in the Shoah.
