Join Rabbi Shira Gluck for a three-part series exploring the biblical book Shir HaShirim (Song of Songs). In the first session we will encounter the book itself, with a focus on its poetic forms and imagery. In session two, we'll discuss the rabbinic perspective: the book's place in the biblical canon and its use in ritual and liturgy — especially the Haggadah. The final session will examine Shir HaShirim's role in the Kabbalistic imagination with emphasis on Shabbat worship. Zoom meeting information will be provided upon registration.
