Visual Midrash: The Incident of the Golden Calf

Sunday, December 9th at 9:30am
One of the most puzzling incidents in the Exodus story, leading to Moses' smashing of the Ten Commandments. What exactly happened, and how do artists' interpretation of the story in the Torah help us to understand? And why a calf? We will use ancient, medieval, classical and modern art (including Poussin, Lippi, Francken, Merton, Chagall) as a way to illuminate the text as we piece this puzzle together.


Ten Commandments With Rabbi Tzvi Tuchman
