On four evenings, the topic will be "Judah and his Tribe: The Formation of the Jewish People."
Judah, a son of the Patriarch Jacob and a brother of Joseph, had a lasting impact on the formation of the Jewish people; the Kings David and Solomon sprang from his tribe. Therefore, this year's week of studying the Torah will be devoted to the figure, actions, and descendants of Judah.
Sarah Brukner, a Jewish teacher, will chair this year's Torah studies. The participants will learn how law-abiding Jews deal with the Torah. The Torah has "70 faces," which means that Jewish exegesis is anti-fundamentalist. Mrs. Brukner will impart this emancipatory dealing with biblical texts to the participants. No prior knowledge is necessary in order to participate.
Sarah Brukner grew up in Zurich. In 1986, she, her husband Jechiel Brukner, and their children made Aliyah. In Israel, Mrs. Brukner was mostly a mother and a teacher--the Brukners have six children. Since September 2018, Sarah Brukner has been working in the Cologne Jewish congregation's adult education; her husband is Rabbi of the Cologne congregation.
This year's week of studying the Torah begins on Sunday, July 21, 2019 and ends on Wednesday, July 24, 2019; the time is 7.30pm to 10pm every evening. Studying will take place in the community hall of the Protestant Church Parish Horb-Dettingen, Priorberg 6, 72160 Horb am Neckar, Germany.
The fee is 45 Euros per person for all four nights; the fee for high school and university students is 25 Euros.
