Please join Marc Ashley’s 25th annual adult education class this spring! Marc will address the development of Jewish tradition within a classical framework that claims to be fully comprehensive tracing back to the original revelation at Mount Sinai. The Torah explicitly prohibits additions or alterations to the original revelation: “You shall not add anything to what I command you or take anything away from it!” (Deut. 4:2).  Indeed, the Talmudic rabbis generally considered the divine Torah to be perfect, all-encompassing and permanently valid. Even God could not amend the original revelation! So how has Judaism justified its own historical development in the face of those threshold limitations?

Please join us on Zoom for three interesting sessions on classical Jewish thought; no prior knowledge is required.
