SUMMER 2021 COURSE
Judaism Decoded is a unique exploration of the inner workings of Judaism, shedding light on the mysteries surrounding the origins and evolution of Jewish tradition.
Is there any evidence supporting the veracity of Judaism as we practice it today?
What in Jewish tradition was invented by the rabbis, and what can be traced back to ancient biblical texts?
If our tradition is Divine, why is it subject to differences of opinion?
How do contemporary rabbis know how to adapt biblical law for modern times?
Discover the sheer elegance of the "source code" on which Torah law is built; enjoy the razor-sharp reasoning, intelligent debate, and compelling arguments of the Talmudic dialectic; and get a fascinating, behind-the-scenes glimpse of the most intellectually sophisticated religion in existence.
This course is dedicated in loving memory of Zelic and Yetta Green and Martin and Judith Herman.
By their children Alex and Barbara Green.
