Rel 231. Classic Jewish Texts (4)

While many people know that the Hebrew Bible ("Old Testament") is a foundational scripture for Judaism, fewer are familiar with the post-biblical Jewish classics. Yet these works shaped the understanding of God, the identity of the Jewish people, and the vision of history and of the ethical life that inform Judaism as we know it today. As students read the Talmud, Midrash, and traditional prayer-book, they will become familiar with the wisdom of the rabbinic sages, and the central concepts of Jewish tradition.
