Forbidden Wisdom: Ben Sira

Tuesday, January 12, 2021 28 Tevet 5781

8:00 PM - 9:00 PMzoom

A learning session with clergy intern Naomi Zaslow. The apocryphal book of Ben Sira is quoted multiple times in the Talmud, despite the rabbinic ban on reading apocrypha. Elements of Ben Sira even show up in our Yom Kippur prayers, as part of the Musaf Amida! In this class, we will explore the rabbinic ban on apocrypha, and highlights from Ben Sira that are used in the Talmud, and in the Yom Kippur Musaf.
