The Dilemma

A new six-week course from The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute

Analyze, discuss, and debate Talmudic texts in pairs with live interactive polling for an authentic taste of original, dynamic Talmud study—chavruta style.

Apply mind-bending, brain-twisting, hair-splitting Talmudic reasoning to solve real-life modern dilemmas - situations that actually happen to real people yet seem absolutely impossible to solve. What do you do when your gut tells you one thing, and your brain tells you exactly the opposite? Prepare for a mental expedition, defying the limits of human reasoning, to tackle situations that force us to choose between two reasonable truths that are equally close to our hearts.

Lesson I: No Good Deed Unpunished
Lesson II: Taking the Law into Your Own Hands
Lesson III: The Found Object
Lesson IV: Liability for Proximate Cause
Lesson V: More Equal than Others?
Lesson Six: Accomplice to the Inevitable
