Rabbi Micha'el Rosenberg
Tuesdays, 7:45-9:00 PM Eastern
Oct 12-Dec 7
The second chapter of Tractate Makkot deals with someone who kills without intent and their imprisonment in a "city of refuge." We’ll focus on the original text and Rashi, with occasional reference to a Tosafot and outside commentaries. This class is perfect for those with a background in Talmud as well as adventurous learners ready to jump into the original text with a guide.
