Parashat Sh’mot (שמות) — And the Bush Was Not Consumed

2015/5775 Parashat Sh’mot (Triennial II) — And The Bush Was Not Consumed

In this week’s parashah, we encounter the famous moment in which Moses meets God by way of a “bush all aflame, yet the bush was not consumed” (Exodus 3:2). This symbol of the burning bush was adopted by Solomon Schechter, the first great chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS), to be the symbol of the institution known as the scholarly fountainhead of Conservative Judaism. For today’s class, we will use the insights of JTS rabbis (and the commentaries they bring) to understand the value of this symbol today.
