Opening the Gates of Study: A Talmud Shiur for Everyone
The early rabbis were engaged in a radical project to entirely reimagine the Jewish world as they knew it. Part of that meant opening text study and interpretation to the entire Jewish world. Come explore their world and follow in their footsteps by learning a Talmudic text—in the original Hebrew and Aramaic! You will learn with a chevruta (study partner) and walk away as part of this new reopening of text study. Please note: You must know the aleph bet to participate in this session.
