Advanced Biblical Hebrew 3: Ancient Israel's "Egyptian" Tribe: The Levites

This course was offered in Winter/Spring, 2018.

Blending elements from Richard Elliott Friedman's new bestseller, The Exodus and other sources, we will explore the historical, archaeological and textual evidence suggesting a special connection between Egypt and the tribe of Levi. From there, we will translate selected passages representing the oldest texts of the Hebrew Bible to test that connection.

Recommended Text: R.E. Friedman, The Exodus, HarperOne, 2017.

Note: April 22, 29, May 13, 20 and 27 sessions will be recordings distributed to students in advance. May 6 and June 3 sessions will meet at Lehrhaus Judaica in Albany and also be available live online and via recording. For recorded sessions, individual students may dialogue with instructor via email or Zoom meetings.
