Parallel Paths: Ruth And Avraham

Parallel Paths: Ruth And Avraham

Join Sepha Kirshblum and explore the concept of intertextuality by comparing the stories of Avraham and Lot with Ruth and Orpah. We will study Avraham and Lot and how much the two have in common but then sadly, how they go in very different directions. We will then learn how the same happened with Ruth and Orpah. What’s even more powerful is how the text, through its words, compares Avraham and Rut as well.

Mrs. Sepha Kirshblum teaches Tanach and Jewish Thought at Midreshet Moriah. Sepha, as our students call her, has a genuine love for both her students and Torah, especially Tanach. She tries to create a balance of creativity, fun, humor and kavod Ha-Torah in the classroom to help her students love learning as much as she does. Before making aliyah, Sepha taught Tanach at the Ramaz Upper School, where she was also Senior Grade Advisor, Israel Advisor, and involved in extracurricular programming. Sepha received her BA from Stern College with a Major in Judaic Studies and a Minor in Psychology. She received a dual Masters in both special and regular Education from Hunter College. Sepha lives in Efrat with her family.
