Join Rabbi Cohen for this Lifelong Learning Session exploring the Talmud. 

Rabbis love to quote texts from “Our Tradition.” Rabbis cite teachings and stories from the Mishna, Talmud and especially Midrash. Rabbis cite rulings from various law codes and often use the commentaries from the great scholars of our tradition, such as Rashi and Ramban -  All in order help guide and inform the way we live our lives as Jews. If you have ever wondered what is this Talmud or Midrash the Rabbi is always citing or who the heck is Rashi (and why did his parents name him like that) then come and experience it all for yourself as we delve into the actual texts, discuss the meaning and background of the texts and ultimately join in the conversation that has been ongoing for centuries.
