Nazir: Vowing Abstinence for Holiness
Led by Rabbis Katz and Lindemann

The Nazarite vows abstinence from wine or any grape derivative, cutting his/her hair, and contact with a corpse. Does such a vow really create a higher level of holiness? What does this Tractate teach us about the nature of religion and human nature? How do the stories of Samson, Queen Helena of Adiabene, and Samuel add to our appreciation of these issues? Why does the Talmud devote an entire Tractate to a practice that ceased after the destruction of the Temple? These are just some of the questions raised by the Talmud’s teachings on one of the most esoteric practices found in the Bible.

For now, we are going to meet via Zoom, but we will continue to explore the possibility for meeting in-person. There will be a charge of $80 for the text (two volumes). Please contact Laura Padersky to register.
