Zusia: Mouth of the Donkey

Mouth of The Donkey: Reimagining Biblical Animals

Animals are everywhere in Torah. Snakes and ravens share meals with people; donkeys and sheep work alongside us; eagles and lions inspire us; locusts warn us. How should we read their stories? What can they teach us about ecology, spirituality, and ethics? Reb Laura will lead us in the study of Torah’s great animal stories. Together, we’ll go deeper into some ideas from her recently published book, Mouth of the Donkey.
