Mishnah Ketubbot: Marriage, Money and Gender
Wednesday Nights, Mar. 2 – May 18 at Congregation Eitz Chayim, Cambridge
We’ll explore the first chapter of Mishnah Ketubbot in this course. Looked at from the perspective of its literary/anthropological patterns, this chapter reveals insights into the way the Rabbis of the Mishnah viewed men, women, and marriage. It also opens fascinating vistas into how cultures of all kinds deal with money, language, emotion and law. Texts will be in both English and Hebrew.
Classes will meet at Congregation Eitz Chayim in Cambridge, MA. This class is presented in cooperation with Kevah: Making Space for Jewish Learning. See www.kevah.org. Ten class sessions will meet on Feb. 24, March 2, March 9, March 16, April 6, April 13, April 20, May 4, May 11, and May 18. May 25 will be set aside as a makeup day in case of snow.
