Talmud Study with Rabbi Dobrusin
Monday, April 20, 3:30 p.m.
Zoom Link: Click here
Meeting ID: 243 071 238

Rabbi Dobrusin will be facilitating a Talmud class online on Monday afternoons from 3:30-4:30. While we will read the Hebrew/Aramaic text, translations are available and all discussions will be in English. All are welcome to join regardless of the level of your familiarity with Hebrew. The section we will be studying, from the 2nd chapter of the Tractate Bava Metzia, concerns the responsibilities of those who find a lost object. This is a particularly interesting subject to consider since it is such a common experience and one which we can all relate to. It is also a great text for those who are just beginning to explore Talmud study as most of the arguments are typical of Talmudic reasoning and interpretation. Click the links below for both the Hebrew and English text.
