• Talmud for Secular Jews

    Needs a location

    What is the Talmud? The Talmud, a central Jewish text, is one of the most absorbing and challenging religious reference books in the world. It is the source from which the code of Jewish Halakhah (law) is derived. It is made up of the Mishnah and the Gemara. The Mishnah is the original written version of the oral law and the Gemara is the record of the rabbinic discussions following this writing down. It includes the rabbis’ differences of opinions, and covers ethics, philosophy and customs of ancient civilizations. * From a cultural perspective. The adjudication of interpersonal disputes provides context for understanding the ancient civilization, Jewish and gentile. It provides background that helps us understand the origins of man-made laws governing Jewish rituals which exist today, as well as providing guidelines for living meaningful lives. By studying Talmud, we develop the ability to dissect what it means to be Jewish today. Talmud popularizer, Adam Kirsch, has provided an important source for browsing typical topics and discussions.

For more details, write: Michael Witkin at [masked] “…my Talmud study was an engaging session with an intellectually curious group, and a clearly experienced and knowledgeable teacher. As a law student, I appreciated the discussion and found it very thought provoking. It’s also a great way to connect further with fellow members and non-members.” Rachel Manning, member,[masked] http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/judaism/texts/talmud.shtml
