    Bay Area Community Talmud Circles

    "In traditional Jewish society, the purpose of study (lernen) was not information, nor even knowledge, but a lifelong exposure to the sacred texts and an ongoing dialogue with them. Lernen was seen both as an intellectual endeavor and as an act of devotion; its process was its purpose."

    Rabbi Peretz Wolf-Prusan

    ~ Haym Soloveitchik


    The Bay Area Community Talmud Circle, in association with New Lehrhaus (newlehrhaus.org), is a growing, dynamic and welcoming community of adult students engaged in modern Talmud study and active conversation. Five Talmud Circles exist around the Bay Area.

    The meetings are virtual for now, hoping to return to in-person sessions when the situation allows. While the majority of participants are continuing students, anyone may join!

    Bay Area Community Talmud Circle students study with the Koren Talmud Bavli, Taanit-Megilla, available in various print sizes and in digital editions.
