Yom Kippur and the Imagination of the Aggadists

Nathaniel Helfgot / September 11, 2010

We will examine selected aggadot in the Talmud relating to themes of Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. We will explore certain central themes the rabbis attempted to highlight in their non-legal takes on the Yoma rabba (the great day) of the Jewish calendar.
