Book Talk- Rabbi David Kasher In Conversation with Rabbi Dara Frimmer

Rabbi Kasher

Please join us as Rabbi Dara Frimmer will be in virtual conversation with Rabbi David Kasher, the author of "ParshaNut." 

In "ParshaNut" Rabbi Kasher offers 54 essays exploring the vast but understudied genre of Jewish literature known as parshanut, or Torah commentary. From the masters of midrash who began the tradition, to the medieval commentators who defined the style, on down to the scholars of the modern age, Kasher leads an impassioned and engaging tour through the history of Jewish biblical interpretation.

Temple Isaiah and Temple Emanuel congregants, as well as guests, are very welcome.

He was educated at Wesleyan University and UC Berkeley and received his Rabbinic Ordination from Yeshivat Chovevei Torah. He is passionate about Torah commentary and has spent years developing his book.
