"The Talmud's Greatest Hits" is our newest mini-course in the OFJCC and BINA adult learning series called "Judaism: The New Basics."
This mini-course will consist of four sessions. Participants are welcome to sign up for any individual session, or to sign up for all four sessions in the mini-course.
Each class costs $18; the whole course costs $60.
The Talmud is one of the most important texts on the Jewish bookshelf. It is an anthology of conversations that have, over time, created the basis for living a Jewish life. As in any conversation, there are many stories told. This course aims to retell some of the most famous of these Talmudic stories.
This course is a great entry to Talmud for anyone who has never learned Talmud before. In taking this course, participants will become familiar with the Talmud's "greatest hits," and will have a better sense of the language, characters, and objective of the Talmud.
Participants are welcome to attend any individual class or to enroll in the entire course for a discounted rate. To register for all four classes click here. Registration for individual classes is available via the links below.
The March 18 class will be taught by Dan Libenson, founder and president of the Institute for the Next Jewish Future and host of the popular podcast Judaism Unbound.
Dan will teach the famous Talmudic Story, "Achnai's Oven."
