Talmud Class: TractateÂ Gittin -Â Understanding Marriage through Divorce Law
Join us in the unique intellectual, legal, and ethical exercise that is the study of Talmud. We are currently studying Tractate Gittin – The Laws of Divorce. Gittin has many implications on the nature of the marriage relationship, the obligations and expectations betweenÂ spouses. Gittin also deals with contract law.
While no background is required for this class, Talmud study is complex and intellectually challenging so come with your thinking cap on!
Both men and women are welcome.
