Fall 2019 Classes
Intensive Talmud Class: Hullin (Rav Aviva Richman)
Blessings of the Weekday Amidah: New Interpretive Methods (R. Elie Kaunfer)
Thursdays 3:30-5:00 pm (October 24-Dec 12)
Are traditional prayer formulas able to express our own values/ideas of prayer? What do we do when we "disagree" with the prayer's content? How can we interpret the siddur in a grounded and traditional yet creative manner?
We will investigate primary sources (Biblical and rabbinic) that serve as background and inspiration for blessings of the weekday amidah to form an interpretive methodology that invests ancient prayers with more personal meaning.
