WHERE DOES JEWISH WISDOM COME FROM?

WHERE DOES JEWISH WISDOM COME FROM?
Wednesday, July 8
1:00 – 2:00 p.m.
via Zoom
Where does great Jewish wisdom come from? Well…one of the sources is Pirke Avot,
actually a section of Talmud (Mishna, technically). Pirke Avot, usually translated as ‘Ethics of the Fathers’ is a collection of short teachings by some of the early Rabbinic sages with a lot of wisdom packed in. There is a tradition that between Passover and Shavuot, each week we study a new chapter (six weeks between the two holidays, six chapters).  During our last Torah Talk session, we looked at chapter 4…and hardly got past the first few lines it was so jam-packed (‘Who is wise? The one who learns from everyone? Who is rich? The one who is happy with his/her lot…) Next class we will be discussing chapters 1, 2 & 3.
 
A fast moving and uplifting class, great for those who are ‘newbies’ to Jewish texts.  RSVP to Renee by 5:00 p.m. Monday, July 6th.  A Zoom link will be sent only to those who have attended the classes in the past. If you wish to participate, please email Renee for the link.
