Movie Night! Hebron Exposed: Among the Settlers 

Sunday, October 7

7:00-8:30 pM

Private Home in Natick 

(Address supplied upon RSVP)

RSVP to Rabbi Katy


In one of the most divided cities in the world, Jewish-Arab hostility in Hebron is under strict military control. Each individual has their own sense of ‘truth’, making the war one of words as much as guns, stones, and bombs. Tours run continually, each with their own route, narrative, and maps of the area. Some want peace, others retribution, with the Jewish community continually looking to expand into what is now Palestinian territory. With camera working against camera, in this instalment of BBC Arabic's Hebron Exposed, no one perspective seems ‘true’ or ‘right’.
We'll watch the film and then have time afterward for discussion.
Please RSVP so we know how many are coming. Let us know if you'd like to bring a snack.

Talmud is delightful and seemingly unending, filled with wisdom and the source of the Judaism we practice today. This continuing series of classes is open to newcomers to the study of Talmud. Dip into the sea of Talmud in English, and find out some of its treasures. Our study of selected Talmudic texts provides a jumping off point for conversation about topics of interest to us today. All texts are  in English. No prior knowledge of anything at all is needed! Newcomers are welcome. 



Introduction to the Jewish Talmud

Not currently scheduled, but available upon request.

The Talmud is the most important rabbinic literatur​e, and its contents shape the Judaism practiced today. But what is the Talmud? The rabbis speak of “swimming in the sea of Talmud,” a vast set of volumes chocked full of wisdom. With this quick peek into this vital piece of ancient Jewish literature, led by Rabbi Katy Allen of Ma’yan Tikvah – A Wellspring of Hope, you will gain a basic understanding of the structure and content of the Talmud, its role in the Jewish religion, and a taste of its contents. People of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome and no previous knowledge is required.
