Kabbalat Shabbat
What Four Very Short Stories in the Talmud: Tell Us About Jewish Law and Life
By reading four very short stories in the Babylonian Talmud, we will discover that not just rabbinic pronouncements established Jewish law, but so did reports of rabbinic performance of the law. We will see rabbis complying with, and sometimes rebelling against, earlier stated rules. As we read these texts, we will tease out details of everyday life and relations between the sexes. We will also note that often, when implementing the law, the rabbis modified the law.

Followed by a Traditional Shabbat Dinner at 7:30 pm. Call Temple for pricing and RSVP for dinner. 561-832-0804
