You’re Invited: Taking a Place at the Table of Talmud

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join us as we explore the complexities of “who has a seat” at the Table of Talmud. Panelists will share their experiences of “sitting at the Table of Talmud.” Until recently, access to the “table” has been limited by accessibility to the text, the teachers, and the settings. In what ways is broader access positive? What does it offer to the “Table of Talmud”? In what ways does diversity of learners impact the world of study? How can you get a seat at the table?
