Torah as Metaphor: Why Didn't They Teach This in Hebrew School

Our Sages delighted in biblical metaphors, such as water, rock, cloud, and light. However, these are little taught, although the Talmud, Midrash, and Zohar reveal them to be portals to a mature sense of the divine, an expanded consciousness that help us reclaim the two wings the Zohar says a soul needs to fly: Love and Awe. In this session we will consider one metaphor, "Water/Clouds," through guided text study, bibliodrama, storytelling, meditation, and chevruta (study in pairs), to taste of what kept the Sages riveted to our accessible spiritual legacy.
