Join us for another session of Elu Va’Elu, a virtual Beit Midrash with students from Tel Aviv University.

Talmud Class - Masechet Shabbat

June 9, 2020 - 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.
