In this series we will study key passages in the timeless book of Shir Ha-Shirim, initially in their plain sense. We will address key issues such as what love poems are doing in the Book of Books and what truths they reflect about loving relationships, as well as addressing the theological messages of the book through midrashic interpretations. We will also enjoy listening together to adaptations of Shir Ha-Shirim's lyrics in modern Israeli music.
