Jewish Lives: Rabbi Akiva: Sage of the Talmud

Hosted By: The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University

Born in the Land of Israel around the year 50 C.E., Rabbi Akiva was raised in poverty and began to learn the Torah only as an adult. In the aftermath of the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 C.E., he helped shape a new direction for Judaism. Mystic, legalist, theologian, and interpreter, he debated his colleagues in dramatic fashion yet was admired and beloved by his peers. Executed by Roman authorities for his insistence on teaching Torah in public, he became the exemplar of Jewish martyrdom.

This session runs weekly through August 18, but registration closes after the first class on 8/4.
