Saturday Afternoon

Talmud Study at 12:15 PM

Dipping our Toes

in the Sea of Talmud 

(Shabbat Service Ends At 11:45 AM)

For approximately an hour each Saturday after services at HaMakom, Rabbi Jack will lead us in working our way methodically through a tractate of the Babylonian Talmud called Megillah. As the name implies, the tractate deals with the Book of Esther and the holiday of Purim, but as with other books in the Talmud, the discussion among the rabbis is far-reaching, and if we cover all 31 folios, we'll eventually learn about reading from the Torah, what constitutes a minyan, the geography of Palestine, how to attain old age, and much more. There are no prerequisites for participating in this Talmud study group.

We'll NOT be distributing printouts of anything in the class. Feel free to bring a snack or brown-bag lunch. Contact Rabbi Jack physicsrabbi@gmail.com.
