Tufts University: Rabbi Jeffrey Summit - Judaic Studies - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Rabbi Jeffrey Summit | JS096 - INTRO TO THE TALMUD| Judaic Studies2007-01-16

This was one of the finer courses I've taken at Tufts: It was relatively small--only about 25 students--allowing for an intimate class setting. Rabbi Summit is charismatic and shows great enthusiasm for the course. It is evident that he enjoys both teaching as well as studying the material along with his students. He encourages student participation and designs the class around an open forum, where everyone feels comfortable expressing their views. Rabbi Summit challenges his students to think both critically and creatively as they delve into the mystery that is the Talmud.

The workload was totally manageable. There are short reading assignments due for each class. There are no tests or quizzes. There are 2 papers and a take-home paper is 3 pages, the other 10, and the final is composed of three short answer questions...about 6 or 7 pages in all.
