Who really invented the Bible – and Why? (Or Moses 2.0) An Interactive Conversation with Amichai Lau-Lavie
JCC East Bay, Berkeley Branch, 1414 Walnut Street, Berkeley, CA 94709
Join Amichai Lau-Lavie on a journey exploring the depths of Torah and what it means for contemporary people of the book.
As Amichai shares, “The Book of Books was launched in the public domain 2,500 years ago as a revolutionary, strategic and surprising venture. Ever since, the Bible has become the cornerstone of Judaism. Yet in recent generations most people of the book have little or no knowledge of what the book is really all about. These were not the intentions of its original creators. (And no, it wasn’t Moses.)” Come discover more.
Contributing author to Reboot’s Unscrolled, Amichai Lau-Lavie reinterprets and re-reads the birth of the Bible as a bold, compelling and useful model towards better balance between the inherited legacies and modern claims, personal growth, social justice and communal care.
Israeli born writer, teacher, and artist, Amichai serves as the spiritual leader of Lab/Shul.
