    Talmud Study with Rabbi Dobrusin (via Zoom)

    Monday, Aug 15th 4:00p to 5:15p
    All are invited to join our Talmud study class which will resume July 18. We will read the text in Hebrew or Aramaic with an accompanying English translation and all discussions will be in English so no familiarity with Hebrew is required. Since we will begin a new section of text this is a great time to join the class! The text which we will be studying comes from the tractate Bava Kamma and begins with the question of the limitations of an individual’s liability for injuries suffered by others. As is typical of Talmud, the discussion then moves into various other questions of responsibility to others in the community. We invite you to join the group as we continue our study of the unique world of Talmud.
