The Challenge of Abstract Concepts in Torah Literature

Instructor: Elisha Ancselovits

Level: Kollel

Description: This class covers the range of traditional Torah literature. It focuses both on learning the skill of interpreting a term or concept in its actual variant uses (a return to authorial thrust) and on finding the commonality of meaning between variant uses (which exists for most of Jewish history). 

Kollel students are expected to learn with Year Program students during Seder Erev (Tu, 6:00-8:00 pm), and/or during select lunchtimes, and to be active and involved participants in community life.
