Making Sense of the Talmud

Making Sense of the Talmud

 Email
We claim to believe in the Bible, but it seems to me that in reality we're controlled by a small group of old men and their Talmud...
In what way are the laws of the Talmud "the wisdom and will of G-d"? What's so "wise" about the how to divide a garment that two people are fighting over? Why G-d would "will" the procedures for buying a donkey?
How deep can Talmud go?
Quantum logic helps explain a halachic ruling of Maimonides, a puzzling story of the Talmud, a Midrash about the splitting of the Sea of Reeds, and a rabbinic teaching about the relationship between Torah and existence.
Why wasn’t it written in Hebrew, like the Bible and the Mishnah?
