In this class we will enter the extraordinary world of the Talmud, arguably the most important Jewish text after the Torah. Written down between 1,500 and 1,800 years ago, we’ll discover how relevant its teachings are today! While focusing on the Origins of Jewish Prayer, we will also learn about traditions and theological tenets that have stood the test of time, as well as practices and teachings that serve as the foundations for the way we live Judaism today.
This course is appropriate for both beginners and those who have already studied Talmud. Knowledge of Hebrew is not a prerequisite.
