Dr. Yael Ziegler

Wednesday 9:00-10:15 Yearlong

Bereishit 1-11 offers an account of humankind’s beginning. What do these chapters teach us about the Torah’s view of the cosmic order, the purpose of humans, the nature of a failed society, and the relationships between God and humans, man and woman, and brothers? We will employ midrashim, medieval parshanut, and literary tools in an attempt to mine these rudimentary and profound chapters for their lofty and universal messages.

Greatest Hits of the Talmud

Thursday 9:00-10:15 Yearlong

This class will examine a wide range of some of the most famous sections in the Talmud in order to appreciate the literary depth and structure that make up the different sub-units (sugyot) of Talmudic discourse. Rabbinic stories and halakhic analysis intertwine to meld into a fascinating and very influential dialogue that has relevance for us today in matters of practice, belief and interpersonal relationships. Students will learn to listen to the voices in the Beit Midrash of the Sages and join their own to an ongoing 2000 year old conversation. In addition to focusing on  Talmudic terminology and methodology, we will also explore the conceptual framework of each and every topic and, in some cases, the practical legal ramifications as well. There will be a source booklet that everyone will be required to purchase.
