Learning Happy Hour: You Mean I Can Read Talmud?
What does the Talmud have to teach about balancing work and life? On Tuesday, May 15 at 7pm at Oliver's Astoria, join educator and author Eli Steier for Talmud study geared towards those who have never read a page of Talmud and particularly those who think they never will. The section of the Talmud we will be exploring will focus on conjugal rights (in this case, a man's obligation towards his wife). All materials are provided and all levels are welcome. RSVP on the Facebook event and contact Lisa with any questions.
