Midrash are interpretive stories that explore the blank spaces in Torah, often offering answers to questions of meaning, character, and inner life. We’ll read some classical midrash and explore what driving questions fueled the sages. Then with guided writing exercises, creative prompts, and gentle feedback, we’ll also write and share our own midrashic responses to the Torah stories at hand.
