The Bay Area Talmud Circle 
with Professor Deena Aranoff

The Bay Area Community Talmud Circle is a growing, dynamic, and welcoming community of adult students engaged in modern Talmud study and active conversation. Talmud Circles meet around the Bay Area monthly on Sunday mornings for two hours. San Francisco Downtown Lunchtime Talmud meets Wednesdays at noon for an hour. This unique project is a collaboration of Lehrhaus Judaica and The Aleph Society of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, hailed by TIME magazine as a "once-in-a-millennium scholar."

Steinsaltz writes: “The Talmud is a central pillar of Jewish knowledge. It is not only important in and of itself, but it is organically connected to just about everything in the realm of Jewish knowledge, from the practical, everyday halakha to exciting and dizzying mystical notions.”

While the majority of participants are continuing students, anyone may join. Newcomers to Talmud study should participate in “A Taste of Talmud,” please consult the print and digital catalog for locations, dates, and times.

Bay Area Community Talmud Circle students study with the Koren Talmud Bavli, Berakhot, available in various print sizes and in digital editions.
Co-sponsored by Lehrhaus Judaica, and the Aleph Society of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz.


Deena Aranoff is assistant professor of medieval Jewish studies at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. She also teaches Bible, rabbinics, and Jewish mysticism in a variety of adult education programs.
