Proverbs-Psalms: Singing the Sounds of Real Life

The course will explore the distilled language of Israeli poets as they sang the songs of their lives. They are remarkable in that they are common to many people today.


Times change and life’s issues take new forms. Solomon never sat in a traffic jam on the freeway and we never fret over an attack by the Philistines, but human emotions remain the same. In this course, Proverbs-Psalms: Singing the Sounds of Real Life, students will study the distilled language of Israel’s poets as they sang the songs of their lives. They are, amazingly, like the songs of people’s lives today.
