Rise of the Rabbis

Module 6: The Development of the Mishnah
In this module, Rabbi Jane Kanarek, Ph.D., explores a central genre of rabbinic literature: midrash (biblical interpretation). Rabbi Kanarek demonstrates how midrash enables the rabbis to be imaginative, daring, and sophisticated as they remake the TaNaKh (Hebrew Bible) into a living document, a book of complex narratives and of rich rabbinic law. Our sample is from the opening of Rabbi Kanarek’s lecture.
