Together, With Love, We can Change The World: Talmud Study as a Counter-Cultural Rebellion
Deep-dive into the universe of the Talmud. Our task will be twofold: First we will study three different texts from the Babylonian Talmud that will be moving, provocative and relevant in their own right. Next, we will explore what the Talmud and process of engaging it means for us in our world today: How can this ancient text, with its seemingly strange logic (or lack thereof), be a powerful spiritual and communal resource? No experience needed, just be ready to have fun and think big. Original text and translations provided.
Educator: Our very own, Rabbi Jason Rodich, who is particularly interested in issues of social justice, Jewish thought, Israel engagement and youth development. A recipient of a Wexner Graduate Fellowship for his rabbinical studies, Rabbi Rodich was also awarded the Rubin Memorial Prize for Scholarly Writing and the Samson H. Levey Prize for Outstanding Student in Rabbinic Literature.
