Talmud Study - Lesson 13: The Mishnah Revisited

In this class, we will revisit our Mishnah. After studying the Talmud's exposition in the past classes, does the Mishnah appear any different now from when we studied it for the first time? Word by word, line by line, we will study the Mishnah again, only this time through the lens of the Talmud.

Todah Rabah I have completed all 13 lessons and can't express how much I appreciate your willingness to freely share your knowledge and understanding to anyone out there who is willing to listen. I have been so blessed by Chabad.org and Rabbi Wolf's teachings and so many others I have listened to. I have learned much. This website is such a valuable resource of truth and a light to the world. Todah Rabah. Barukh HASHEM. Reply

Last lesson comments I want to thank Chabad and especially Rabbi Wolf for giving this course. Rabbi Wolf is capable of selling oil to Saudi Arabia. While I appreciate studying all the detailed nuances noted in the Talmud, not being a chasid or haredi (ultra-orthodox) guy, I would suggest that the teaching of the sages be explained or modified to 2010 real world conditions as they exist in Israel today. That too is most important. Also to spend 7-8 lectures on monetary theft rewards and 3-4 lectures on the usage and meaning of oaths, I find to be very excessive. A summary format, as in this last lecture, would be more appropriate and would allow for other topics to be discussed. Thank you again! Reply

Completing a Book of Talmud - You bring a wealth of information any honest human being would appreciate. These classes make me feel better about the choices i have made in my life. Living a life of just lie's makes for a negative contribution and a poor man. Living a life that makes contributions too life is worth living everyday, to me at least. Human beings are not objects but a object with no purpose is really not of this world. Hashem grants all of us love favor and kindness as long as we are up front and honest with Him, blessed be His Name. Thank you for sharing these Talmud classes for all of us. Reply

These Talmud classes will be studying and analyzing the third chapter of tractate Bava Metzia, which presents the Jewish approach in many matters of civil law, particularly vis-à-vis the different degrees of liability assumed by guardians, renters and borrowers.
