Discovering Talmudic Principles

Sugya B’Parasha
Talmudic Discussions Surrounding the Weekly Parsha

This new Talmud series presents an innovative weekly class covering a ‘sugya’ (Talmudic discussion) related to the parsha of the week. The ‘sugya’ revolves around an engaging and interactive talmudic discussion, made relevant and practical for life today.

For example: Can the mitzvah of Bikur Cholim be performed over zoom (Parshat Vayeira)? What is the Torah’s perspective on incarceration (Parshat Mikeitz)? Is the Even Hashtiya indeed located in the Dome of the Rock today (Parshat Vayeitzei)?

This series follows the previous Talmud series’ designed to make in-depth Talmud study accessible, engaging, relevant and geshmak to all!

Ongoing weekly class on Tuesdays | 7:30-9:00 pm
