Bringing the Inside Out — The Story of Hanukah as Told by Tractate Shabbat

Why do we light Hanukah candles and what do they symbolize? We all know the story of the miraculous flask of oil that burned for eight days, but is that the whole story? In this class we will examine and analyze the meta-themes and literary structure of the section in Tractate Shabbat in which the laws of Hanukah are taught.

This 10 week Talmud course, culminating at Hanukah time, will offer both skills in reading the Talmudic text in its original as well as adding a new layer to our understanding of this well-known and beloved Jewish holiday. This class is an introductory level Talmud class open to anyone who has a basic reading comprehension of Hebrew. Wordlists will be provided for the Aramaic.
