Between the Lines

Insights from Midrash with Rabbi David Levy, Rabbi Charles Schwartz, Rabbi Andy Shugerman, and Rabbi Abigail Treu

Between the Lines is the next in our series of columns devoted to the various genres of rabbinic literature. In previous years, we have used this space to explore texts of the Mishnah and Talmud; this year, we turn our attention to Midrash.

Written in alternate weeks by Rabbi David Levy, Rabbi Charlie Schwartz, Rabbi Andy Shugerman, and Rabbi Abigail Treu, the column explores a web of personalities—our biblical ancestors, God, the ancient Rabbis, and ourselves—to provide a window into the inner world of the Torah.
