Revolutionary Rabbis: Talmud Study as a Tool for Radical Change
Hosted By: Hebrew College
In Jewish tradition, what’s more powerful, your gut feeling or the words of the Torah? How many Aramaic words actually, when you look into it, mean glitter? Were the rabbis in the Talmud queer? Inspired by SVARA’s Talmud study methodology, this course will probe Talmudic texts to expose their radical and revolutionary roots. Using empathic listening with a chevruta (study partner), we will read the Talmud with an eye towards its focus on subtle but radical systems change. Whether you’ve just learned your alef-bet or you’re a seasoned Talmud student, we’ll give you the tools to read, translate, and access our tradition’s most radical text.
This class will meet on the following dates: April 8, 15, 22 & 29/ May 6, 13, 20 & 27
