Lost in Translation: Gender, Language, & Marriage in One Talmudic Story

  • Franciscan Community Center 214 West 97th Street New York, NY, 10025 United States (map)

Presented by Hadas Fischer

Eretz Yisrael, Rabbinic time. A Babylonian guy marries a local girl, but the honeymoon is short. When a series of misunderstandings threatens the happiness of the newlyweds, only one rabbi can restore marital peace. Join us in exploring a Talmudic tale of immigration, marriage troubles, and love lost in translation. No prior knowledge is required! This is the next class in a new monthly series in which SZ members present a text-study that introduces diverse texts from our tradition.
