    In addition to many legal discussions, the Babylonian Talmud contains extended narratives that personalize the Rabbis of the Talmud. Who were these men who shaped our traditions? What were their predilections and passions? We will study stories that provide insight into the Rabbis’ family lives and academic pursuits, their fears and aspirations. By better understanding the architects of rabbinic Judaism we can better appreciate the richness of our contemporary traditions.

    The inner state of the religious person is a central focus of the Book of Deuteronomy. The imperatives to love and fear God, to cleave unto God, to be whole-hearted with God, as well as the centrality of memory as a religious command, are a distinctive feature of Sefer Devarim. This course will study and analyze the parameters of these imperatives as we encounter them in this book.

At Drisha, people of all ages and backgrounds study Torah in an inclusive Beit Midrash, marked by deeply rigorous and honest learning, a commitment to the Jewish people, and a passion for connecting our study of texts with our individual and communal lives.

I learned what it means to bring your whole self to Torah study. This meant challenging myself and others to formulate an idea honestly and with clarity, grappling with an idea within a previously held worldview, bringing every discipline and insight to the table as a potential tool to understanding, and sharing a joy and enthusiasm with the community of students of Torah that surrounded me.
