    The Drisha Kollel begins each day with intensive Talmud study, and we are opening the Talmud shiurim to members of the community. If you would like to spend each morning for one month or two learning with us, we invite you to join our study of the sixth chapter of Masekhet Sanhedrin. The chapter focuses on judicial procedure and punishment, addressing questions such as the purpose of punishment, how we are to enact love of our fellow in the most extreme situations, and conflicts between honoring the dead and honoring the living.

    Classes meet Monday to Friday, from 9:30am to 1pm.
    Apply for one session or two: May 25-June 23; June 26-July 28.

    Price: $ 100.00

    The rabbis’ interpretation of biblical laws is integral to the early development of halakhah, yet their readings – as in the infamous case of “an eye for an eye” – often seem divorced from the pshat (straightforward meaning) of the text.  What principles guided the rabbis’ interpretation of biblical law?  How did other factors – such as social, cultural or ethical considerations – influence their understanding?  How can we as modern readers come to terms with the disparity between the pshat of the text and the rabbis’ interpretations? And what do we mean by pshat, anyway?

Support Drisha

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.
