Talmud Class: Food in Paradise
What did Adam and Eve eat (before the apple)?
Join Rabbi Joel Levy in this three-part class to explore how different generations of sages conceptualised the ideal relationship between humans and the natural world. We will look at how the Talmud weaves biblical sources to imagine and re-imagine paradise before the eating of the forbidden fruit. This series is for beginners to intermediates in Talmud, and will encourage reading sources in their original languages.
“Neither is [the Torah] beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who among us can cross to the other side of the sea and get it for us and teach it to us, that we may do it’? No, the thing is very close to you, in your mouth and in your heart, to do it.”
