Aggadah in the Talmud

February 17, 24, & March 2, 7:30pm

Throughout the Talmud there are many times when, in the middle of a legal discussion, the Text offers an aggadic tale elated to the topic at hand. Looking at a different story each week, we will examine how these non-legal, situational, moral tales are influenced by, and impact, the halachic discussions in the Talmud.  This class will be taught by Rabbi Ravski.
