In this course, we will study Talmudic and Midrashic stories that will allow us to examine ancient values and how they relate to our modern society and the world in which we live. Included in our study will be stories that describe the lives of the rabbis and how they portrayed such values as truth and falsehood; shaming of individuals; encounters with the other; proper manners; and communal disagreements.  

The primary sources will be studied from many different perspectives including historical, sociological, and literary approaches, and will enable us to evaluate our personal lives as we encounter our families, our communities, and society at large.
