Rabbi Brent Spodek

When we Jews are described as the People of the Book, the book in question is not the Torah. 

The Torah is, for sure, the cornerstone of Judaism, but Judaism is actually constituted through the Talmud, the study of which has been one of the pillars of Jewish life for millenia. 

So I’m particularly excited to round out a year of Talmud study with the third part of Talmudic Stories

The Talmud is one of the richest and most complicated works of literature the world has ever known. Since being composed around 1500 years ago it has inspired not only religious reverence but significant intellectual engagement. We’ll look at a few of the central stories of the Talmud and reflect on what they meant in their own time and in ours. No prior experience with the Talmud or Hebrew language is necessary. 

The class will meet online on Saturdays at 4:00 PM. The classes will be recorded, so any classes you need to miss can be accessed after the fact. Please click here to register for the class.

If you have any questions about the content, please be in touch with me; if you have any questions about registration, please contact Faith Adams

 

With blessings,

Rabbi Brent
