Take Student Learning to the Next Level.
This course builds upon the foundations developed in Talmud I, introducing students to heightened textual and conceptual complexity along with an in-depth examination of the legal mechanisms used by the rabbis to legislate Jewish law. With a focus on power and authority within halakha, this course explores the relationship between the Rabbis and the community, the power of precedent, the role of sevara (logic), and the limits of judicial independence, while also introducing students to several classic Talmudic sugyot (cases). Students will come away from this course with an appreciation of the ways that Jewish law balances competing values, as well as the ability to navigate Talmudic texts to unlock meaning and values within their own lives.
