Talmud Skills Intensive

Teacher: Daniel Reifman

Level: Intermediate/Advanced

Description: This course is designed for students who want to develop textual proficiency in Talmud and basic rishonim. We will concentrate on techniques for parsing the Talmud text and constructing the logical flow of the sugya, with the goal of allowing students to read an average sugya independently by the end of the course.
Additionally, we will discuss the way different rishonim comment on and seek to resolve problems in the Talmud text. Students should have strong Hebrew language skills and some prior experience studying Talmud.
