Curious Tales of the Talmud

Judaism is full of deeply resonant and transformative wisdom. Some of its most profound ideas about life, the universe, the soul, and our relationship with G-d are encrypted in an unusual place - within peculiar and nonsensical Talmudic tales. The Talmud’s zany legends tell of gargantuan sea creatures, vinegar-fueled lamps and idolatrous kings. Join us for a three-week course and journey to unravel layers of personal meaning as we decode these mysterious tales together.

For centuries, the Talmud’s witty legends have entertained and inspired Jews and Gentiles in communities across the globe.

It’s a wonderful opportunity and I hope you will attend. —Jackie Mason, Comedian and Actor
