Speed Talmud: On One Foot, In One Hour
Monday, June 3rd | 7:00-8:15pm
There you are in a delightful social situation and suddenly everyone is quoting Talmud. Torah, Midrash, Mishna, Gemara! Your head aches and your stomach hurts. Talmudic Reference Dysfunction (TRD) is an embarrassing condition that can cause shame and humiliation. These feelings can cause people with TRD to pull back from loved ones and become reclusive, staying home alone waiting for the next PBS fundraiser ("oh look, The Moody Blues").
If you have a friend or loved one (even yourself) suffering from TRD then let it be known that Lehrhaus Judaica has a quick, safe, and guaranteed cure. In one hour you will be able to recognize a Midrash from a Mishna and more. Yes, SPEED TALMUD will give the confidence to engage in Talmudic repartee and put the bounce back in your step and a smile on your face.

Older adults, we need your wisdom and warmth to explore and impart our rich traditions to our preschool children. We will celebrate and discover together through examining Pirkei Avot (Teachings of Our Fathers), holiday celebrations, and Shabbat. Please join us for storytelling, art, and song to connect the generations. This program is presented in partnership with the APJCC Center for Jewish Life and Learning, the APJCC Preschool, and An Ethical Start®.
