The Torah of Money: Tzedakah and Human Dignity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The early rabbis re-created Jewish communal practice in the centuries that followed the fall of Jerusalem in 70 c.e. What did they teach about the social safety net? How did they propose balancing communal needs and preservation of the dignity of those in need? We will study the closing passages of tractate Peah in the Tosefta (ca. 350 c.e.) to examine these and related questions. All texts will be studied in translation and no prior knowledge is assumed.
