My father recommended that the Judaism and Christianity in Antiquity program at UVA adopt this pedagogical approach over its current Hebrew Bible requirements.

Somehow I don’t think Liz Alexander will go for it. 😉

A new twist for the ancient Torah

Ritual Torah storytelling goes back thousands of years, but a local synagogue is bringing in a group of traveling performers to help bring it up to date. In an effort to inject added life into what can sometimes be a routine reading of Torah verses during morning services, this weekend Keneseth Israel Synagogue is holding “Storahtelling” events that will combine traditional Torah readings with modern theater.
