  • Rabbi Thomas has collected dozens of wonderfully subversive, multi-vocal folktales from the Talmud mined from the work of Yonah Fraenkel and others. These tales cover a wide range of universal human questions which the rabbis felt safest embedding in stories, rather than in halachic (legal) discourse. Texts are in English and Hebrew and the teaching is interactive and discussion based. Topics include: Free-will vs. Predetermination, Miracles: Can’t live with em, Can’t live without em, Confronting mortality, and more.
