Day often reveals while night conceals, day is explicit while night destabilises: 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: who is the Talmud hiding in the opening to the 8th chapter of Sanhedrin?
We'll explore the re-framing of worship & 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.
