Beginning Tuesday, January 3, 2017 for men.
Talmud study is one of the most challenging endeavors for a man without formal yeshiva training. Yet, it is also the most rewarding.
Now at Congregation Toras Chaim you too can experience the struggle and inspiration of the Talmudic experience, tracing the thread of Divine knowledge from the Torah verse to the Mishnah (200 CE) to the Gemara (500 CE), through the Rishonim (early commentaries, 1000-1500 CE), Shulchan Aruch (1500 CE) and Achronim (more recent commentaries, 1500 CE – Present).
In addition to Talmudic arguments, you will learn grammar and word roots in both Hebrew and Aramaic. Plus, reinforce the lesson with a ?????? (study partner) during the hour session. You will even become familiar with Rashi and Tosafos, the primary commentaries to the Talmud.
The goal is not to finish an entire tractate, but to get a serious taste for real world Talmud study and Psak Halacha (how to decide a matter of Jewish law) by focusing on a single chapter in the Talmud.
This class, open for men, will take place Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 7-8 PM, beginning Tuesday, January 3, 2017, at Congregation Toras Chaim, 7103 Mumford Ct., Dallas, TX 75252.
Cost: There is a $15 cost for this class which includes the Talmudic study book and other materials.
