PEOPLE’S TALMUD GOES LIVE AT THE GA IN TEL AVIV
October 21, 2018. Every five years the Federation’s General Assembly is in Israel. This year, 2018, it was in Tel Aviv and the People’s Talmud was there with a booth thanks to the kind support of one very special dude! For the three days of the conference there was the People’s Talmud’s founder, Gedaliah Gurfein and two different volunteers to help deal with the crowd.
Visitors ranged from very Orthodox Jews, people from the OU, women rabbis, directors of Israel’s top art school, Bezalel Academy and Conservative and Reform rabbis. Even one woman from Tokyo!
It was amazing to see how across the board people really loved the idea of the People’s Talmud. One man came over and said he had heard the People’s Talmud is ADHD sensitive. At first we thought he was joking but then he told us his whole life he wanted to know what was locked away inside the Talmud but because he suffers from such severe ADHD he could never find a way in. Now he wanted to know all about the People’s Talmu
