Have you ever wanted to study traditional Jewish texts in the original Hebrew but weren’t sure how? Do you want to experience traditional Beit Midrash-style learning with a hevruta (study partner)? Are you interested in taking your Daf Yomi studies to the next level? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this class is for you! This course, offered in partnership between Temple Emanu-El and Shel Maala, an internet-based grassroots beit midrash, will guide you through learning selections of Mishnah Pesahim (the tractate that will be studied in the Daf Yomi cycle in November & December). This class is for anyone who can read Hebrew – all you need to know is your aleph-bet!
This course will be preceded by a session on How to Study the Mishnah (and Why It’s Important) on October 21, where we will discuss everything you need to know to explore and understand the Mishnah.
Note: No class Nov. 4 or 25
