Talmud Study with Rabbi Kalmanofsky
Wed, October 16 at 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Wednesday, repeating indefinitely
This year in Wednesday night Talmud we will study the tenth chapter of Tractate Yevamot.
In this chapter, the Talmud wrestles with “the Return of Martin Guerre.” What happens when a woman remarries after a spouse’s supposed death, only to discover that the reports of his demise were greatly exaggerated? The textual, ethical and literary challenges elicited profound responses from centuries of interpreters, including Shai Agnon, the modernist writer who wove a novella [“the Crooked Will Become Straight”] from this material.
