The Rabbi on the Beach @ The Shul on the Beach

Intro to Talmud 2

This is a follow up post to a previous entry.

We concluded our two day session on the Talmud and the study of Talmud. The class ran a bit overtime so the audio is a bit longer.

Issues touched upon included why some sections of Mishna have Talmud on them and some do not, why Talmud study is useful, why we study Talmud with a teacher or study partner, how Talmud has been commented on and explained over the last 1500 years.

There are some great anecdotes and insightful questions during the session as well.

Recommended listening! (70 minutes)

Intro to Talmud 1

Today I gave a lecture for a local Aish Campus retreat. My friends Rabbi Bloom and Rabbi Quinn run Aish Campus in Los Angeles and they invited me to give a 2 part lecture on the Introduction to and Philosophy of Talmud.

Today we had a very engaging session with a lot of great questions. We covered some very interesting ideas which are central to Torah study and understanding how our forefathers kept Torah before it was given to the world at Sinai many years later…

Just click the audio player to listen to the lecture (40 minutes).


Part 2 is posted here.
