Talmudic Tales Brought To Life

Beth El Congregation presents Gila Fine, acclaimed teacher of rabbinic literature, on Thursday, June 20, discussing her new book, “The Madwoman in the Rabbi’s Attic: Rereading the Women of the Talmud.”

The program is in memory of H. Allan Lipsitz, Beth El Congregation’s first Program Director for Adult Education from 1998-2007. The talk will take place from 1:00-2:15 p.m. in person at Beth El, 8101 Park Heights Avenue in Baltimore.

Gila Fine lectures in rabbinic literature at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem, exploring Talmudic tales through philosophy, literary criticism, psychoanalysis, and pop-culture, revealing their relevance for our time. She is also a faculty member of the London School of Jewish Studies, the Nachshon Project, and Amudim Seminary, and has taught thousands of students across the Jewish world.

Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks called Fine “one of the great Talmud teachers of our time.”

The program is open to the entire community without charge. For more information or to register, please visit:
