Rabbi Green is the dynamic rabbi of Congregation Bet Mishpachah in Washington, DC. She comes to this area from Temple Beth Zion in Buffalo, NY (Reform) where she was a highly-regarded associate rabbi. She is an exciting and challenging teacher and we welcome her encore visit.
You may never have heard of the Jerusalem Talmud (a.k.a. the Yerushalmi), or you may have heard that it's impossible to understand and less relevant to us today. Not true.
The Jerusalem Talmud is a fascinating and rarely explored store-house of Jewish tradition. In fact, one of America's leading Talmud scholars is of the opinion that the Jerusalem Talmud is MORE relevant to Reform and Reconstructionist Jews. If the Jerusalem Talmud had its way, our prayer, our laws, and our lives would look very different. Come learn why the Babylonian Talmud took over, what the Jerusalem Talmud can offer, and how to get started studying the Jerusalem Talmud on your own.
