Tufts University: Rabbi Jeffrey Summit - Judaic Studies - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Rabbi Jeffrey Summit | JS096 - INTRO TO THE TALMUD| Judaic Studies2007-01-18

This class is really a very good class. It provides a great introduction to many different topics in the Talmud and the way the themes are presented make them very accesible. The class is a seminar, which works very well as it provides the opportunity to hear a lot of different opinions on the passages. There is also a lot of discussion in pairs or small groups. Rabbi Summitt is also a great guy to take a class with. He is very enthusiastic and really cares about all the students in the class. He is a busy guy, but will always make the time to meet with you, especially to help you find quotes in the Talmud for the papers.

The workload is pretty light. Some short readings for each class, a short three page paper and then a longer ten page paper and a take-home final. The hardest part of the papers is finding the quotes in the Talmud. Once you have them, the paper writes itself.
