Judaism as we know it today was developed by the rabbis over 1,500 years. Most of their thoughts and interpretations are found in the 20-volume work known as the Babylonian Talmud. We will study a short tractate known as Makkot. It discusses false witnesses, the exile to the city of refuge, and punishment of lashes. It may sound a bit arcane but it actually is very interesting.
The Torah serves as the foundation for all aspects of Jewish practice and belief. In this class we study the medieval commentaries on the Torah. Though they lived 1,000 years ago their psychological and religious insights are just as relevant and provocative today.
