    Second Temple Rabbis: Contextualizing our Tradition
    Monday, Nov 1st 8:00p to 9:00p
    In this series we will learn about the lives of Talmudic rabbis who shaped Jewish tradition as we know it today. We will focus on the Second Temple period, primarily from the conquest of Alexander the Great (332 B.C.E) through the Bar Kokhba revolt (135 C.E.) We will learn about the history and the context of the teachings of the rabbis of the Mishnah, with a focus on how they adapted Jewish practices to the changing times. We will examine and study Talmudic texts as well as other historical materials that can shed light on the subject such as the works of Josephus Flavius and the Apocrypha.
