Teaching Biblical Personalities in Religious Middle Schools

Dorona (Abramson) Reingold

This Hebrew paper examines how accepted teaching methods among Bible teachers often causes a dissonance between the written biblical text and the world of Midrash. This approach often limits the student’s ability to grapple directly and creatively with the text in a meaningful manner. This problem is particularly troubling in relation to the treatment of the biblical characters. The author suggests approaches which enable the student to read the biblical text in a more active, focusing on the character of Esther by way of example.
