09/02/14 – Remember the Days of Old: Jewish Consciousness in Historical Context – w/R. Mike Feuer


Sunday, Feb 9, 2014
Today’s Topic: From Mishna to Gemara

~ Course Description ~
What is history? This question will drive our class as we search for truth along the path that Am Yisrael has traced through time. If you want to revolutionize your context for learning Torah and understanding our national experience, to infuse history with the depths of Jewish thought, then join this weekly exploration of Jewish consciousness in its historical perspective. We will anchor ourselves in a timeline of people and events, laid out from Daniel to the Zionist era. Our primary task will be to analyze the relationship between world history and the Jewish experience. Our goal will be a holistic vision of Jewish history. In addition to a sound education in the scope of history, this class offers a unique framework for an integrated understanding of the path we have taken through time. Come find the insight the past offers, and taste it’s inspiration for the future.

~ R. Mike Feuer ~
Rav Mike’s teaching style is a mix of desire for rigorous analysis and a passionate love of the poetry found in learning. He approaches learning and teaching as a process of mutual self development between teacher and student.
