About this Episode

The topic for this session: Does Judaism proclaim some fundamental truths? What about "my truth" drawn from my own experience?

The study of Torah is to be a lifelong enterprise. We do it not just to master the text or to learn how to perform the rituals of Judaism. Studying the texts is to help us encounter the challenges and opportunities of life. Hence texting (that is studying) is the Jewish way to live life to its fullest. In this class we will study and discuss some stories and texts from the Talmud as a way to explore issues both personal and societal in contemporary life.

This session was conducted via Zoom on February 10, 2021. Rabbi Strassfeld was introduced by Amy Bernstein, Senior Rabbi of Kehillat Israel.
