Talmud with Training Wheels:  Lending Money, Interest and Shylock
With Ira Wise
Mondays, 7:30-8:30 p.m.
See your weekly email for Zoom link.
A rabbi named Ben Bag Bag was speaking of Torah when he said “Turn it over and over and over, because everything is in it.” The Talmud is a recording of rabbis turning the Torah over and over, looking for guidance on the concerns of their day. It reads like an ongoing conversation between 800+ years of rabbis and the people in the Torah itself. And they are inviting us to sit down and discuss OUR concerns with them.  Join Ira Wise and the rabbis of the Talmud for an enjoyable and accessible discussion of a number of relevant ideas!
