Learning to Read Talmud with Habits of Heart and Mind

March 23, 2017 Newton Centre Free 0

Join us as we explore the art of learning to read Talmud with habits of the heart and the mind. Led by master teachers, Jane Kanarek (associate professor of Rabbinics and associate dean of Academic Development and Advising at Hebrew College) and Marjorie Lehman (associate professor of Talmud at the Jewish Theological Seminary), this celebration of their new book, “Learning to Read Talmud: What it Looks Like and How it Happens,” will engage us in a thought-provoking evening about how we learn to read this foundational and sacred text.

Jane Kanarek is the author of “Biblical Narrative and the Formation of Rabbinic Law” (Cambridge University Press, 2014) and is currently working on a feminist commentary on tractate Arakhin. Marjorie Lehman is the author of “The En Yaaqov: Jacob Ibn Habib’s Search for Faith the Talmudic Corpus” (Wayne State University Press, 2012) and is currently working on a feminist commentary on tractate Yoma. Together, with co-editor Simon Bronner, they have recently completed the upcoming “Mothers in the Jewish Cultural Imagination” (Littman Library of Jewish Civilization).
This event is part of the Hebrew College-Congregation Mishkan Tefila educational series.
