Tuesday Night Talmud: Tractate Arakhin — Valuing Life

Led by Rabbi Lindemann
This tractate takes its name from the Hebrew word Erekh—Valuation. Its impetus is the last section of the Book of Leviticus (27:1-8), which deals with vows to dedicate the value of a person to the sanctuary. Clearly, assessing the value of a life has great relevance in this time of COVID and Black Lives Matter. But in evaluating a life, the text also considers such matters as gender, profession, and disability. The tractate goes on to additional issues, such as Lashon HaRa—literally, the evil tongue—speaking ill of people in gossip or slander and the impact of sin and forgiveness upon an individual’s psyche and soul. All interesting topics for study and discussion.
Tuesdays at 8:15 PM, January 5, 19, February 2, 16, March 2, 16, April 6, 20, May 4, 25
