Tales from the Talmud with Rabbi Grushcow

Thank you for your interest in Tales from the Talmud with Rabbi Grushcow. This series will be held Wednesdays at noon, beginning November 18, and take a break on December 16th, resuming in 2021.

The Talmud is a central Jewish text, famously full of legal debates, but also full of stories. These weekly classes will explore different tales from the Talmud, and what they reveal about human nature, relationships, ethics, and God. Beginning with a brief orientation to the Talmud and its place in Jewish tradition, we will study stories compiled in two books: The Land of Truth by Jeffrey Rubenstein, and A Bride for One Night by Ruth Calderon. Each session will stand on its own, so come every week or just drop in.
