Talmud Class - Masechet Shabbat

October 29, 2019 - 8:30pm - 9:30pm

Instructor: Richard Friedman

This class focuses on the text of the Talmud -- what it says and how it says it. Discussions are lively, and range from legal details to the theology of commandments.  All questions are fair; no belief is assumed except that study of Torah is worthwhile.  Texts are in Hebrew/Aramaic and English.  Participants include people who have studied Talmud before and people who have not.
