Discovering Talmudic Principles

New Talmud Course:

One Torah: Merging the Law & the Mystical

Since every section of Torah — law, philosophy, mysticism — is part of ‘One Torah’, the talmudic meaning not only fits with the Kabbalistic interpretation, but when merged, the mystical clarifies and brings meaning to the law. Using a variety of examples, this course will give students a taste of this unique approach of Torah study, as introduced in the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

Developed for the first time, this course is presented in connection with Gimmel Tammuz, the anniversary of the passing of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

Tuesdays, June 18, 25, July 2 | 7:30-9:00 pm

Lesson 1: When did you get married?

In this class we will analyze various concepts related to the principle of the ‘recurring action’, and discover how this Talmudic principle is rooted in the secrets of marriage and the creation of the world.

Lesson 2: Is ‘community’ a Jewish concept?

In this class we will analyze various laws related to communal matters and responsibilities for one another, and discover how these Talmudic principles are rooted in the nature of the Jewish soul according to Chassidic philosophy.

Lesson 3: Why two days of holidays in the diaspora?

In this class we will explore several principles related to various mitzvot, such as Tefilin, Jewish holidays and others, and discover how the law and the mystical dimension are merged together much like a soul to a body.
