Rabbinic literature divides itself into three distinct yet overlapping categories: legal, fanciful, and mystical. In this three-part course, we will trace ideas and questions through the great classical Jewish books of Talmud, Midrash, and Zohar.

These texts represent the practical application of our moral ideas that our ancestors have struggled with for thousands of years and which continue to be used to this day. Come explore with us!

No previous knowledge of text or Hebrew required.
