Golems, Golems, Golems!

Or Emet members Michal Moskow and Scott Chazdon will present an online program on the Jewish mythological golem story, its connection with Jewish mystical mathematics, the appearance of golems in literature, as well as more recent interpretations of the golem myth by female Jewish authors.
Golem stories originated in the rabbinic literature and became part of the Jewish folktale tradition. The most famous golem is that of Rabbi Judah Loew, the Maharal of 16th-century Prague, featuring the golem as a large, powerful, humanoid created from clay to save the Jewish people from outward danger.
