New course offered exploring the Talmud

Mordey Richler
Special to the Tribune

Some people have always wanted to study Talmud, but thought it was too complex and inaccessible to anyone lacking extensive training. Not anymore.

Investigate the interface between the written and the oral law and explore how Jewish values are formulated and shaped by Jewish law.

This course introduces people to a discussion. They will tackle challenging analyses about the classification of various kinds of finds and explore the Talmud’s directives regarding civic duties and moral responsibilities.

They will delve into the 2,000-year-old Talmudic tradition, examine interplay of law, logic and ethics as they acquire study skills.

For more than a thousand years, the most important cultural activity has been the study of Talmud. It has sustained people through persecution and exile, shaping the discourse of the people and serving as the crowning achievement of intellectual tradition.

Participants need no prior knowledge of the Talmud and no formal legal training. There are no prerequisites other than an open-mind.

Enter the world of the yeshiva. This Talmud course brings authentic Talmud study with a master teacher. Sit before an open page of the Talmud and engage in intense discourse and debate. It provides the guidance and support that lets participants take part in this Jewish intellectual tradition.

Two locations: Mondays in South Lake Tahoe at 10:30 a.m. Coffee and refreshments will be served.

Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. in Tahoma. Light dinner will be served.

Contact R. Mordey Richler at 530-314-7677 or info@JewishTahoe.com to RSVP and for more information about this course. $10 suggested donation.
