South-Florida-logo

The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) will present Curious Tales of the Talmud: Finding Yourself in the Legends of Our Sages, the institute’s new six-session Spring 2013 course that will begin during the week of April 23.

Rabbi Ruvi New of Chabad will conduct the six course sessions at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday April 23 at Chabad of East Boca 120 NE 1st Ave. Boca Raton.

In Curious Tales of the Talmud, participants will encounter legends of gargantuan sea monsters, impossible feats, anthropomorphisms, and riddles that challenge the foundations of the Jewish faith. In deciphering the meaning behind these strange episodes, students will discover secrets containing profound insights into the meaning of life.

“Whether you are fascinated by the Talmud and Jewish mysticism, or whether you are seeking a fun and meaningful experience, you won’t want to miss this course,” said Rabbi New, the local JLI instructor in Chabad of East Boca “The material is as relevant as ever, promising to deepen the way we understand ourselves, our universe, and our relationships with the people we love.”

Like all JLI programs, Curious Tales of the Talmud is designed to appeal to people at all levels of Jewish knowledge, including those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning. All JLI courses are open to the public, and attendees need not be affiliated with a particular synagogue, temple, or other house of worship.

Interested students may call 561-417-7797 or visit www.myJLI.com for registration and other course-related information.
