In this third year of our examination of the intellectual, political, and social world of the sages, we will use close textual analysis and discussion to delve into the personalities and life of key scholars. Our journey will include Rabbi Akiva, Rabbi Meir, Rachel, and Bruriah, and how they shaped post-Temple Jewish perspectives from the year 70 through today.
