Suzanne shares the wisdom of her Hebrew Bible teacher, Tamar Pelleg, offering a deeper understanding of the first Creation story in Genesis.

The ancient Jewish Bible study methods of Midrash and Kabbalah teach four stages of Bible interpretation: 1. reading the simple meaning of the text, 2. discovering hints in the text that point to meanings beneath the surface, 3. using the hints to explore the text, and 4. finding the sweetness—something transcendent that touches your heart. Suzanne shares this approach to the story of Creation as taught to her by her teacher, Tamar Pelleg, an Israeli Bible scholar and Maggid.
