THE BRUCE RITHOLTZ TALMUD PROJECT: A new kind of Gemara shiur, dedicated to the memory of Bruce Ritholtz a”h. The class will undertake the goal of studying and completing an entire chapter of Talmud each year followed by a siyum to mark its completion at the time of Bruce's yahrtzeit, between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The class will be focused on a clear understanding of the text of the Gemara, together with in-depth explorations of selected topics followed by interactive dialogue through social media and email. This year we will be studying tractate Sanhedrin, Chapter 1.
This class will be broadcast live from Lincoln Square Synagogue (LSS) in New York.
LSS is a diverse and vibrant Modern Orthodox Congregation that provides religious, social, and educational services and outreach to the unique Jewish community of the Upper West Side. The synagogue strives to be a model in the integration of Halachic Judaism and contemporary life to the broader Jewish community.
