This week the Humanistic Study Group will be exploring Jewish myths. This is a huge topic! Where should we begin?

There are two creation stories (Genesis 1:1-2:4a and Genesis 2:4b-3:24). What are the differences in the two stories? What is the intention or meaning of each story? What does this mean to us as Humanistic Jews?
