Talmudic Stories and Contemporary Moral and Psychological Issues

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

Many fascinating stories in the Talmud raise a wide range of moral and psychological issues. These stories, which tend to be short and to the point, deal with such issues as relations between husbands and wives, the misuse of power due to egotistical attitudes, sensitivity to the poor, and the formation of the ideal community.
