Talmud II - Greatest Hits of the Bavli

Description:
Greatest Hits of the Bavli: A Guided Tour of the Talmud’s Tractates In this class we will look at various sugyot (Talmudic passages) from throughout the Babylonian Talmud, beginning with Tractate Berakhot and moving on to Seder Moed then Seder Nashim, and finally Seder Nezikin. In each class we will examine a different sugya, beginning with the Mishnah and moving in to the Talmudic discussion of that Mishnah. The goal of this class is to give students a sense of the range of issues covered in the Talmud, the questions that animate the rabbis, and the way they go about seeking answers and making meaning.

Description:
Description: The Babylonian Talmud is a tapestry of voices sounded from the first through the sixth centuries C.E. One of the greatest literary treasures of human history, the Talmud's passages weave together arguments over legal matters, descriptions of rituals, theological speculations, midrashic interpretations, biblical legends and folklorish wisdom. It is without a doubt the book that set the agenda for Jewish learning throughout the ages. But the Talmud is not a transparent work. In Advanced Talmud we focus on the Bavli, its sources and its post-Talmudic interpretation. We attempt to reveal how the Bavli was edited, how it radically shifted the Jewish understanding of the Torah, God and the world, and how it was interpreted and used as a source of law and wisdom subsequent to its editing. This year we will be learning passages from Tractate Shabbat. We will see how the notion of forbidden work emerged during the Second Temple and early rabbinic period, how the "39 forbidden labors" were codified and used as the basis of all Shabbat law in the Talmudic period, and how early Talmudic commentators adopted Talmudic law to match the reality in which they lived.

Description:
Jewish life through millennia of diaspora could not be maintained by an infinitely deferred promise of future rewards in exchange for current suffering. It required Jews to taste for themselves the immediate benefits of a life of spiritual practice. Shabbat has played a major role in allowing regular Jews to touch redemption in daily life. We will see how the detailed, disciplined practices of Shabbat were shaped by the rabbis of the Mishnah and Talmud to that end. This course is for students with a limited background in rabbinics to learn to unpack the highly compressed literary and legal texts of the tannaitic period and to see how they evolved when they were interpreted in light of the different concerns, genres and approaches of the Amora'im. We will aim to furnish students with the skills both to become independent readers of the Mishnah and Talmud and to see the philosophical and religious issues at play behind the highly technical language of these texts.

Description:
While Shabbat has remained central to Jewish identity and practice since the Bible, the notions of Shabbat and its observance have hardly remained static. Instead over the course of several generations the Jews imagined and re-imagined what a palace in time and space would look like in their study and innovations around the concept of Shabbat. A close look at at Masechet Shabbat is at once a study of the Rabbi’s attempts at bridging the gap between tradition and innovation and an opportunity to explore the ways in which we continue to create sacred space and time today, divide between holy and profane and create community. This level course is for students who have already acquired a certain familiarity with the study of Mishnah and Talmud. We will begin by reading chapters of Mishnah Shabbat together with parallel sections from the Tosefta. We will go on to study chapters from Bavli Shabbat with Rashi’s commentary – with special attention being paid to the Tannaitic background of the Talmudic discussions, the literary structure of those discussions and their social, moral, and philosophical underpinnings. Students will leave the class with the ability to independently study a Talmudic sugia with tools available in the Beit Midrash.

The Torah of Human Rights - Achvat Amim
Rothberg
9:00
12:00
Description:
The Torah is not just a book but a way of life. For thousands of years, Jews have sought the meaning of their lives in the study and practice of Torah. At the core of the Torah project stands the struggle for justice. In this course, we’ll explore the struggle for global human rights through the prism of Torah tradition. Starting with creation, we’ll follow the logic of the Holy Story through the exile from Eden, the choosing of Abraham, the covenant at Sinai, entering Eretz Yisrael, the visions of the prophets, and the meaning of these in Rabbinic, Medieval and modern interpretation. As we immerse ourselves in the logic of Jewish tradition, we will ask: What do human rights mean in Torah terms? And how can Judaism help achieve global human rights?

Judaism, Human Rights & the Status of Non-Jews in Israel

Description:
In this course, we’ll explore the relationship between Judaism and human rights through the prism of the status of non-Jews in Israel (both in the sense of the Land of Israel and the State of Israel). This issue requires a multi-disciplinary approach, exploring perspectives provided by Halacha, Jewish thought, modern Israeli law and international human rights law. Critical aspects of the issue also involve modern Israel's history and politics. To get at the fundamental issues at stake, we will touch on all these aspects through text study and meetings with activists and ideologues. We will also consider possible implications for our own Jewish identities.

Social Justice in Israeli Society - Power, Money & Social Change
Cohen
9:0
12:0
Description:
Jewish social justice discourse often revolves primarily around the axis of tselem elohim - being made in the image of God and tikkun olam, the imperative to repair a broken world. While these concepts are important and do provide a basis for equality and social change they alone do not account for the complexity of the issues that we face in striving for a just society. This course will get at why it is so difficult to achieve justice and equality. We will examine competing values and priorities that are at stake when we strive for justice, be it economic, gender based or ethnic. This course is an in depth look at some of the most pressing social justice issues facing Israel today. We will examine these issues through the lense of Biblical and Rabbinic texts alongside contemporary social, economic and feminist theory. We will get to know the issues as they played over the course of history and apply them to the reality today. Specifically we will address resource allocation and economic justice; gender issues; immigration and ethnic diversity.

Conceiving the Whole - An Exploration of Classic Jewish Theology
Rothberg
13:15
16:15
Description:
Classic Jewish theology sought to conceive the whole: to weave the ideas and practices of Jewish life into one coherent perspective on God, humanity and the world. In this class, we will try to grasp the inner logic, and behold the power and beauty, of one of these perspectives - that of perhaps the greatest Jewish philosopher of all times, Rabbi Moses Maimonides. And we will juxtapose Maimonides' rationalism and universalism to the 'organic' and particularistic Judaism presented in the Kuzari by Rabbi Yehudah Halevi. In pursuing a deeper grasp of these two thinkers, we will seek both to understand their ideas and to enrich our own religious lives.

Artistry of Aggadah
Kurshan
13:15
16:15
Description:
Though the Talmud is commonly regarded as a legal text, it also includes many stories, legends, homilies, and parables, known collectively as Aggadot. In this class we will consider the Aggadot of the Talmud as literary texts that both shed light on the world of the Talmudic sages and contain timeless spiritual and ethical wisdom. Classes will focus on core concepts that inform Talmudic Aggadot, enabling us to construct a veritable Talmudic alphabet from Astrology, Beauty, Courtship and Death to Yearning and Zealotry. We will also consider clusters of stories about key Talmudic figures such as Rabbi Akiva (and his wife, son, and daughter), and discuss the possibilities and problematics of Talmudic biography. Students will emerge from the class with a deep appreciation of the conceptual complexity and artistic sophistication of rabbinic literature, as well as its eternal and ever-evolving relevance.

Following the foundational stories of the universe, humanity and the nation of Israel, we will practice performing readings of Genesis from a range of different perspectives. The stories you think you know will take on multiple new meanings through a deep exploration of the text. Underlying every reading is our attempt to make sense of Bereshit as a whole and its connection to the rest of the Chumash. We will develop our Biblical Hebrew reading skills and begin to work with mefarshim (commentators), particularly Rashi.

Bible - Elijah & Elisha
Hollander-Goldfarb
13:15
16:15
Description:
Concentrated in one period are some of the most colorful biblical characters: Elijah, Elisha, Ahab, Jezebel, and Jehu. The prophet Elijah burst onto the scene with a declaration of a drought – and disappears from it in chariots of fire. His student and successor Elisha is perhaps less flamboyant, but possibly more influential. It is the time of human kings and God-sent prophets. Who is more powerful and how does this power struggle play out? We will study the stories in the center of the book of Kings, sharpening biblical story and Parshanut skills, and raising some disturbing questions. We will discover new angles to stories and characters we might have thought we knew, and become familiar with some stories that are rarely studied, but should be. The texts will be in Hebrew. The Hevruta sheets (guiding questions) will be in English. Recommended text: Tanakh Melachim Mikraot Geldolot or any Mefarshim they want. Not necessary on day 1.

Golden Calf & Anger of God
Rothberg
13:15
16:15
Description:
A close reading of the story of the golden calf reveals surprising theological teachings about God’s anger and the need to resist it. In this class, we’ll delve into the meaning of the story of the golden calf through a close reading of the Biblical text with help from Rashi and the Midrash. We will also explore how commentators ranging from the Zohar to the Rambam understood the problem of God's anger in the Hebrew Bible. For the Zohar in particular, God's struggle to overcome anger in order to fill the world with life and loving-kindness has deep existential implications for our own spiritual practice. We are meant to both assist and imitate God in this struggle. In this course, will try to tackle one of the thorniest theological problems in Jewish tradition while exploring its implications for our own lives.

Our constant guide will be the Shulhan Arukh (Yoreh De’ah) as well as additional source sheets outlining the process of halakhic development grounded in the Talmud through the commentaries of the medieval period and the best-known codes of Jewish law and responsa literature. While studying the traditional texts, we will constantly be widening our halakhic perspective and discussing the relevance to our personal and communal lives as Jews in the 21st century.

Intro to Talmud
Silverstein
13:15
16:15
Description:
The rabbinic tradition represented a transformation in the Jewish tradition. It introduced the idea that universal study could be a means for both transcendence and the search for truth. The Babylonian Talmud may be its crown achievement. Shaped between the first through sixth century, it contains a panoply of the elements that make up Jewish life and religion. Throughout the ages, its unique way of argumentation has provided its charm and its challenge. The ability to fathom its depths has been a lynchpin in shaping Jewish identity. In Introductory Talmud, we first focus on the earliest works of the rabbinic tradition: Mishnah, Midrash Halakha and Tosefta as independent texts before moving on to see how the Talmud uses them and other materials to build the basic units of Talmudic discussion know as a sugya or argument. Emphasis will be placed on learning Talmudic terminology, the structure of the Talmudic sugya, and on the Talmud’s manner of interpreting earlier sources. This class aims at fostering independent learning skills including the use of Rashi’s commentary. This year we will be learning passages from Tractate Shabbat. We will examine the concept of “melacha” – forbidden work, and how the rabbinic interpretation of this term came to define the meaning of Shabbat and how we observe it.

We will examine traditional sources for explicit and implicit concepts and biases about gender. In discussion, we will explore the extent to which these traditional concepts apply in our contemporary lives and how they impact our sense of Judaism, the world and ourselves.

Exploring the Zohar – Book of Radiance
Rothberg
13:15
16:15
Description:
Since its mysterious appearance some seven hundred years ago, the Zohar has emerged as one of the most powerful forces in the history of Jewish tradition. The Zohar’s radical hermeneutics, its passionate and often erotic religious intensity, and its mystical formulation of Judaism’s fundamental ideas, have riveted many of Israel’s greatest sages while appalling others. This class is an introduction to the Zohar through a close reading of selected texts. We will approach the text in its original Aramaic alongside Hebrew and English translations. We’ll also explore how practices like guided imagination and chanting can help evoke the power of the text.

Sha’are Orah: Fundamentals of Kabbalistic Symbolism
Rothberg
16:30

Description:
Rabbi Joseph Gikatilla's Sha'arei Orah (=Gates of Light) is a classic work of 13th century Kabbalah long considered instrumental to grasping Kabbalistic symbolism. Great masters, such as Rabbi Isaac Luria and the Vilna Gaon, recommended it to their students. In this course, we will delve into Sha'arei Orah (in both the original Hebrew and in English translation) to understand how the Torah, the self and the world can be understood through Kabbalah. The world of religious symbolism presented by R. Gikatilla, while intellectually rigorous, is not academic but rather seeks to transform the mind through Torah practice. In this course, we will utilize not only text study but also meditation and chanting in our attempt to access what lies beyond Rabbi Gikatilla's Gates of Light.

This class will explore Rabbi Kalonymus Kalman Shapira’s, the Piaseczna Rebbe’s, Conscious Community: A Guide to Inner Work, translated by Andrea Cohen-Kiener from the original Hebrew, Bnei Machshava Tova. In her words "Within this volume, Reb Kalonymus teaches the art of self-observation. The reader is exhorted to be mindful of God at all times, with specific advice given for enhancing the experience of prayer. By addressing adults who are not withdrawn from worldly pursuits, Reb Kalonymus has provided a timeless guide to Jewish spirituality that will be an invaluable resource for today's seekers." The class is designed to provide the necessary tools enabling the student to encounter the Divine Presence within and to hear the soul's unique "still small voice." The goal is to develop an expanded Godly consciousness, sensing the Divine in an immanent, visceral and authentic way.
