Course Description :

Purim and Pesach are coming - we know the customs, the rules, the foods and the rituals. But let’s dive deeper into the Talmudic sources to see how these holidays came to be observed and the meaning the Rabbis found in them. Purim and Passover are amongst the most observed and beloved holidays in Jewish life. The power of the Talmudic logic, ethic, and debate will come alive as you experience the rigors of Talmudic discourse. Imagine the material you will be able to add to your Purim Shpiels and Passover tables!
