TALMUD IN DEPTH – TRACTATE CHAGIGA (ONLINE)
In this course, we discuss and analyze Mishna and Talmud texts to understand the development of law during the Mishna period (10–200 CE) and the Talmud period (200–600 CE). The course focuses on topics (“Talmud-sugiot”) that deal with laws pertaining to how the holiday of Succot was celebrated in the temple.
The course is given in English, in collaboration with Paideia – the European Institute for Jewish Studies in Sweden.
To apply for this course, you need basic computer skills and knowledge of how to use the digital platform Zoom. The school offers Zoom manuals and a training opportunity before the start of the course.
Hebrew knowledge is helpful but no prior knowledge or Hebrew language skills are required. The texts are read in English, if they are available in translation.
