You’ve probably heard of the Talmud, but what is it? Why does it hold such a prominent position in Jewish learning, law, and
morality? In this class, we will take a look at the histories, mysteries, and major figures of the Talmud. We will also study some of its texts. No prior experience with Babylonian Aramaic required. All sources will be available in English translation. New students, please contact Rabbi Moss before joining the class.
