RESPONSA FOR THE 21ST CENTURY

EARLY MORNING STUDY WITH RABBI KALMANOFSKY The tradition of Jewish wisdom stretches back millennia, to times and places unimaginably different from our own. Sometimes we can apply ancient wisdom to modern problems, and sometimes that's not so easy. Each month we will study modern rabbinic attempts – mostly heterodox, sometimes more traditional – to answer today's questions, in areas like medical, social, economic, and political ethics. Second TUE of the month at 8:15AM

Talmud Study with Rabbi Kalmanofsky

The Secret Mysticism of the Talmud Generally, Talmud is the least esoteric sort of Jewish wisdom. The Sages' care mostly about often very mundane law, like property disputes and kashrut. But Talmud also has its own occult lore. This year in Wednesday night Talmud we will study the second chapter of Tractate Hagigah, which you can purchase on-line, or through our dear friends at West Side Judaica. We'll read stories of mystical rabbis, and we will supplement the Talmud's material…
