Book Report – Fall 2021 – Talmud for Beginners by Judith Abrams
Rabbi Folberg suggested this book during our first mentor meeting of this semester when I told him I wanted to start reading Talmud.
Journal Entries, Spring 2021
The following pages contain all of my journal entries for the Spring 2021 semester. Some of it is personal, some of it is stuff I'd tell to any friend or stranger on the street. Enjoy.
Semester 2 Begins
Hello! Here I am, once again, popping up from the blue after many many months away. Class is starting up again, so I feel like I'll maybe have a little more motivation to share things.
LJL #1- Life Cycles 1 – Birth
First class was really cool! It was apparently a sort of non-traditional start to the class because we had an interesting guest speaker who was available for the first half but not the second. We got into the nitty gritty details of how the class was going to work at the end.
So I’ve started doing some of the reading for class (you know, the one that doesn’t start for 2 more weeks?) and I’ve got a bit of a study plan worked out, that I’m going to write here to share and to keep track.

This Isn’t New #2
Me, doing reading for class: why do I know so much already? Is it all going to be basic common knowledge stuff?
