Weekly Talmud Study
Temple Emanu-El’s weekly seminar on Talmud examines the text in English translation, with informal yet spirited discussion. No background in Talmud or Hebrew is required.
Rabbi Philip Hiat, professor of religion, humanities and campus ministries at Marymount Manhattan College and scholar in residence at Central Synagogue, continues to lead this program. This year, the group will study Mo-eid Katan, which ostensibly deals with the intermediate days of Passover and Sukkot. It also discusses mourning, and with the sanctity of the human being, both during one’s lifetime and after. This will be the seventh tractate taught by Rabbi Hiat at Emanu-El.
All are welcome to join the class at any time during the year — both newcomers to Judaic studies and those who have long been studying. Classes meet Wednesdays, starting October 2, 2013, and continuing through June 25, 2013, from 6 PM to 7 PM. Participants should enter at the Marvin and Elisabeth Cassell Community House (One East 65th Street).
