You (yes, you) can learn Talmud! In this empowering course, we will learn how to learn Talmud in the original by delving into a powerful Talmudic story. The course will use the method developed by SVARA: A Traditionally Radical Yeshiva. We will explore the structure of the traditional page of Talmud, learn how to use dictionaries, parse Aramaic grammar, and add our own voice to tradition – all while having a ton of fun.


The course will meet on Zoom for two hours, divided into class time and time to learn with a chavruta (bring your own or we’ll pair you). We will meet for 8 sessions, March 26-May 28, breaking for Pesach.


This course is for learners who: can read the Aleph bet (or even advanced Hebrew!); are new to Talmud or have not learned Talmud in the original before; are excited to take part in our challenging and joyful communal practice of learning Talmud.


We want learners to have access to this course regardless of financial status. If cost is prohibitive – or if you have any additional questions – please reach out to Rabbi Atara at acohen@edcjcc.org.
