The Oral Talmud with Rabbi Benay Lappe

Hosted By: Judaism Unbound

Babylonian Talmud, Seder Zera'im

This weekly class is an introduction to the Talmud through the “traditionally radical” lens pioneered by Rabbi Benay Lappe.

We will explore key stories and other material from the Talmud that was left there by the early Rabbis as a how-to manual for re-imagining Judaism. In alternating weeks, we will interview leading scholars of and thinkers on Talmud to understand the Talmud more deeply from the perspective of contemporary academic study and creative re-interpretation.
