SCHOLARS’ CIRCLE – As A Driven Leaf
September 15, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm$18
As A Driven Leaf by Milton Steinberg
Facilitated by Anita Gutkin
ABOUT THE BOOK:
First published in 1939, this masterpiece of modern fiction tells the tale of renegade Talmudic sage Elisha ben Abuyah’s struggle to reconcile his faith with the allure of Hellenistic culture. Set in Roman Palestine, As a Driven Leaf draws readers into the dramatic era of Rabbinic Judaism. Watch the great Talmudic sages at work in the Sanhedrin, eavesdrop on their arguments about theology and Torah, and agonize with them as they contemplate rebellion against an oppressive Roman rule.
