Trouble in the Vineyard: Talmudic Stories of the Sages of Yavneh

Dr. Devora Steinmetz / June 25, 2013

Audio   Source Sheets  
Stories invite us into the lives- real or imagined- of others, challenging us to use our minds and hearts to enter their struggles, conflicts and achievements. In this series, we will learn four stories about a famous group of sages- Rabban Gamliel, Rabbi Eliezer, Rabbi Yehoshua and Rabbi Akiva. We will discuss methodological issues relating to the study of aggadah, and we will use a variety of tools to weave our way into this tapestry of narratives.
