FREE ADULT EDUCATION CLASSES @ WHC with Rabbi Axelman


Sundays @12:45 PM -- Talmud Class

The goal of this class is to reintroduce people to the wisdom of the Talmud. As Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz writes in Essential Talmud:

“The Talmud is a very hard book to define … from content to style, every definition is incomplete or contradictory. … The Talmud is completely unique--a book that has no parallel anywhere…. If the bible is the cornerstone of Judaism, then the Talmud is the central pillar, soaring up from the foundations and supporting the entire spiritual and intellectual edifice.… In many ways the Talmud is the most important book in Jewish culture, the backbone of creativity and of national life. No other work has had a comparable influence on the theory and practice of Jewish life, shaping spiritual content and serving as a guide to conduct.… [t]he Jewish people have always been keenly aware that their continued survival and development depend on study of the Talmud.
