10 Terrific Talmudic Tales

Location: Community House

From: Wednesdays, October 3 - December 19, 6:15 pm

Details:

Taught by Rabbi Rebecca Rosenthal

The Talmud is more than just laws and edicts. It is a fascinating account of the life of the rabbis – how they lived, loved, ate, argued and helped to form the basis of the Judaism we know today. In each class, we will study one story from the Talmud and you will uncover everything from supernatural acts to rabbinic scandals in an interactive conversation. We will do both hevruta (studying with a partner) and full group examination and debate.This class is free and open to members and non-members.
