Tufts University: Rabbi Jeffrey Summit - Judaic Studies - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Do not take Intro to the Talmud. Rabbi Summit is a really nice guy, and Talmud can be a very interesting topic of study, but the class is poorly done. He is too disorganized and involved in too many other things. He means well and is very enthusiastic, but I think the class entails a bit too much BS. If you're a serious student, it's probably an easy A, but if you really want to learn Talmud, it can be very frustrating at times. He's a great guy, but he needs to learn to be a better teacher.

Short readings throughout the semester (you can easily get by without doing many, if any). A three page paper, a ten page paper, and a ridiculous take-home final that hits you as SOON as you finish the ten-pager.
