"The Talmud as Icon," taught by Barry Wimpfheimer. Part of Skokie Valley Agudath Jacob's learning series, “Jewish Intellectual History: The Known and the New.”
Join us this spring and summer as we delve into our intellectual history. Talented educators and academics in our community will offer a variety of classes and workshops designed to provide you with the foundation for Jewish learning that will last a lifetime. Come to just one or come for them all.
Covering the Biblical, Rabbinic, and Medieval periods, the series will provide an overview of important Jewish figures, events, objects, and ideas.
Barry Wimpfheimer is Associate Professor in the Department of Religious Studies at Northwestern University and the Pritzker School of Law. He is the author of "The Talmud: A Biography" (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2018).
Classes are free and open to the community. Refreshments (kosher) will be served!
The series is sponsored by Aviva and David M. Rubin in memory of Aviva's father, Rabbi Jerome Weistop, and David's parents, Frances and Sidney Rubin.
