Talmud + with Rabbi Emanuel Ben David

New Class Offering: Talmud +

starting January 7, every Thursday at 12:00 Noon

co-sponsored by Temple Emek Shalom and Havurah Shir Hadash. 

In this class we will uncover gems in the broadest sense of Torah, that includes all parts of the Tanakh (Bible), as well as our oral Torah (Talmud, legends, Halakha and midrash). Each week we’ll try to acquire the tools that help us study our Jewish tradition with a focus on our yearly holiday cycle. Wherever possible, the original text in Hebrew will be presented, followed by the English translation. Each reading will be followed by a short discussion, to enhance the understanding of what we just read. The reference material that will be presented and used during the classes will be available here for you to download or review online at your convenience.
