New "Real Time" Torah Anywhere Course Offered

Rabbi Professor Edward Gershfield presents a new online shiur:

An overview of Biblical literature: Narrative, poetry, and prophecy, and their literary styles

It is designed for those who would like to develop a familiarity with Biblical language and literature as well as consider ideas that emanate from selected sections of Chumash (the Joseph story), Kings (the beginning and end of the reign of King David), Early and Late Prophets (Amos and Hoshea, Yirmiyahu) and the Ketuvim (Poetry of Psalms, Wisdom literature of Kohelet and Proverbs).

Hebrew background is not required but is helpful.
