Richard Elliot Friedman is one of the modern Biblical scholars who addressed the question of the Torah’s authorship in his 1987 book, “Who Wrote the Bible?” His work demonstrates how the Torah weaves together the perspectives of four distinct traditions, referred to as the “documentary hypothesis.” We will explore how these traditions reveal fascinating discrepancies and distinctions within the Torah, and offer different answers to questions about the nature of God, holiness and community. Join us as we dissect and discuss Judaism’s most ancient and revered text.
