    Taste of Talmud with Rabbi Josh
    Thursday, Oct 1st 4:00p to 5:00p
    How do we maintain our faith in a light at the end of the tunnel when we don't know how long the tunnel runs? This question is not new in our moment; it's one that has been grappled with in almost every generation of our people's history. This question is the unstated backdrop to the first chapter of the first tractate of the Talmud, the central formative text which created the Rabbinic Judaism that we practice today. Join Rabbi Josh​ for a daily discussion of the first chapter of Masechet Brachot. Through learning this text together, we will explore how the early rabbis maintained their faith in the future during some of the darkest days in our people's history, and will consider how their theological reflections resonate in ours. No prior background in Jewish learning of any kind required. This learning group will be meeting exclusively via Zoom (or phone), Monday-Thursday from 4:00-5:00 pm.
