Rabbis will offer evening of Talmud studies

Ever wonder what’s in the Talmud and why it was written? Who wrote it and where? Why we study it and what we can learn from it?

The Tucson Board of Rabbis will host “Talmud in Twenty” on Sunday, June 5 at Congregation Anshei Israel. The program will begin with refreshments at 6:30 p.m.; the class will run from 7 to 9 p.m.

Rabbis Stephanie Aaron, Helen Cohn, Sam Cohon, Robert Eisen, Shafir Lobb and Thomas Louchheim will each teach an 18-minute shiur (Talmud lesson) on a different topic. Topics include baseless hatred, Shabbat, and laws of personal property.

Admission is $10 per person or $18 for two. RSVP to 745-5550 or online at http://caiaz.org/events-calendar/programs/. For more information, contact Rabbi Kelley Gludt at 745-5550.
