  • Ethical Responsibility and Chametz: A Talmud class for everyone with Rabbi Shahar Colt

    60 Highland Street: Library
    Tuesday, December 6, 2016 - 7:30pm to 9:15pm

    Tuesday evenings; November 15, 22, 29, December 6; 7:30-9:15pm

    (free for CDT members; $36 for non-members)

    What are the boundaries of personal ethical responsibility? How do we make decisions about where our personal efforts matter and where we can look away? Moreover, with so many real life applications of this question, why would anyone look to Talmud study for answering these questions? This class will explore Talmud based texts about chametz, the prohibition of bread on Passover.
    Drawing on this symbol from our narrative of liberation, we will explore these questions by unpacking layers of rabbinic conversations. No previous experience with Talmud, Hebrew, or any other Jewish text is expected, but willingness for engagement and reflection on that challenge is recommended, as we will explore the “why Talmud?” question as part of our study process.
