This discussion question comes from the handout on Midrash. Remember that midrash is not the Bible – it is a form of rabbinic literature that goes back centuries, in which rabbis puzzle over gaps, inconsistencies, or puzzles in the Torah.
- What differences do you note between the 6th century midrash of Ben Sira and the modern midrash by Judith Plaskow?
- Why might midrash revisions be a helpful resource for modern Jewish women?
