Event Navigation

A virtual session presented by Dr. Sarit Kattan Gribetz



ABOUT THIS CLASS: During this pandemic, our sense of time and our daily routines have changed significantly.  Have you ever wondered what God has been doing all day?  In this class, we’ll explore a number of rabbinic stories that imagine God’s daily schedule and nightlife.  These narratives are playful and quirky but beneath the whimsical surface they address profound theological questions about how the world operates and how each of us ought to use the hours of each day.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Sarit Kattan Gribetz is Associate Professor of Classical Judaism at Fordham University.  She received her Ph.D. from the Religion Department at Princeton University and is currently a student in the Advanced Kollel at Yeshivat Maharat.  Her first book, Time and Difference in Rabbinic Judaism (Princeton University Press) was published in 2020, and she is currently working on her next book, Jerusalem: A Feminist History.
