Talmud as Philosophy

May 9 2018, 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

After a session introducing the Talmud and its history, we will study selected excerpts. We will ask questions about the assumed audience and then we will try to uncover the “big ideas” beneath the surface of the text. Our guiding premise will be that Talmud is the body of Jewish philosophic writing that emerges out of antiquity in a form very different from the form philosophy took in the Greek/Western world.  

This class is taught by Rabbi Ira Stone.
