Want to join in on the 2,000-year-old conversation that takes place on each page of the Talmud? Ever wonder what the different parts of the page mean and who wrote them? Learn about Rashi, Tosephot, Rabeinu Chananel and others whose commentary surround the central text of the Talmud. Shlomo Goldberg will describe the layout of the page and the contributors to the conversation. We will look at the page of Talmud and decipher its parts and also discuss some alternatives that arose over the last hundred years. Participants will study a Sugya (section of Talmud) in chavruta (with a partner) before coming together as a group to join the ancient conversation.
