Day often reveals while night conceals, day is explicit while night destabilizes: The Talmud speaks in round-about indirect ways, we will explore the 'day and night' way of Talmudic rhetoric. In this session we will ask: what does the Talmud tell and hide in the opening to tractate Kiddushin?
We'll explore the re-framing of worship and time in Brachot Chapter 4 as a case study for methods of rabbinic radical change-making, interpretation, and innovation. Join us as we dig into the Talmud using a method developed at SVARA that helps learners at all levels become empowered, independent learners of Talmud study as a spiritual practice.
