A Taste of Talmud (Berkeley)
In these introductory sessions, we will explore how the Talmud developed and engage in a conversation with the text, the great sages and our modern world. These sessions will provide students who are new to Talmud study with the background to join one of our ongoing Bay Area Community Talmud Circle cohorts.
The Bay Area Community Talmud Circle is a growing, dynamic and welcoming community of adult students engaged in modern Talmud study and active conversation. This unique project is a collaboration of Lehrhaus Judaica and The Aleph Society of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, hailed by TIME magazines as a "once-in-a-millenium scholar."
Circles exist around the Bay Area and meet monthly in person from October through June. Come for a taste, stay for the meal!
