In this class, we will study sections of the tenth chapter of Chullin, the tractate about making meat Kosher.  We will focus on techniques of Talmud study and keywords that can enable students to unpack the sections of the Talmud, as we discuss sections of Kosher meat that must be gifted to a Kohein and not eaten.  Sub topics would include: Diaspora and Israel Law, priestly gifts in general, the status of Female kohanim, the legal fiction of gentile partnerships to avoid the problem, and priestly gifts in general. Learning will be in a combination of full class and chevruat study.

Rabbi Yaakov Jaffe serves as the rabbi of the Maimonides Minyan and as a member of the Judaic Studies Faculty at Maimonides School. He received his ordination and doctorate from Yeshiva University, where he holds graduate degrees in Bible, Jewish History, and Jewish Education. Besides teaching at Ma’ayan, Rabbi Jaffe has lectured and written widely on topics in Medieval Jewish History, Jewish Education, and Jewish Law. Rabbi Jaffe’s unique approach to Tanach, Tefillah, and Hebrew poetry is informed by his B.A. in English Literature from Columbia University and the historicist approach to the study of ancient texts.

“Rabbi Jaffe is a skilled teacher with a breadth of knowledge that enhances what he’s teaching beyond the text in front of us.  Plus, the students are women with text skills, life skills, and practical knowledge that enrich the learning and bring it all to life.”
