Studying the Sages

November 3, 2019 @ 10:00 am

Study with Dr. Jeffrey Rubenstein, professor of Jewish Thought and Literature at NYU and author of The Land of Truth: Talmud Tales, Timeless Teachings, about the evolution in how we study stories of the Talmudic sages. We will explore several stories together and appreciate their sophisticated narrative art. We will investigate the reasons for the shift in understanding Talmudic stories from history-biography to didactic fiction. All are welcome! Materials will be taught in English.
