In Fall 2014, the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies partnered with Yeshiva College and the YU Museum in hosting “Modeling the Flood Story: Midrash and Movie,” an interdisciplinary symposium examining the biblical flood account and how the story has been read, interpreted, reconstructed – and modeled – through Midrash, medieval and modern texts, art, and film, with a particular focus on the 2014 Hollywood film Noah, directed by Darren Aronofsky.
The Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies and Yeshiva University Museum, in partnership with Rutgers University Press and the American Jewish Historical Society invite you to a nationally-televised conversation with Rabbi Mark Golub and Professor Jeffrey S. Gurock:
