Text & Today: The Texts and Worldviews of the Talmudic Sages

Teacher: Rabbi Zvi Hirschfield

Level: Intro/Open to All

Description: Together we will explore a full range of Rabbinic sources such as Mishna, Midrash Halakha, Midrash aggadah, and Gemara. In addition to appreciating the structure, style, and content of these sources, we will discuss how the Talmudic Rabbis understood and debated their mission of translating the Written Torah into a living tradition. All texts will have English translation and will be appropriate for novices as well as seasoned learners.
