Teacher: Rabbi Bronwen Mullin
Zoom Link: Access shiur here!
Course Type: Chevruta + Shiur
Course Description: To what extent can halakha embody non-binary thinking and liminality? Join us for a 14-session exploration of the origin story of Rabbi Meir! We’ll unpack his expansive ways of learning and turning the text and a take a deep dive into what it means to have gemirna and sevirna. Take this course if you’re ready to devote 6-7 hours each week to Talmud learning! If you’re excited to weave together some big SVARA concepts into one sugya, this is the place for you.
In this shiur, you’ll be expected to prepare in chevruta for 1.5-2 hours in advance of each of the twice-weekly shiurim, which means a total of 3-4 hours of chevruta time per week outside of scheduled shiur time. This shiur is for learners who have had at least one experience learning Talmud with SVARA and are ready to deepen their practice of learning with a chevruta. Sign up with a chevruta or get matched in this shiur!
