"When Wine Goes in, Secrets Go Out”: Wine and Drunkenness in Talmudic Thought

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

From the Passover Seder to the Shabbat table, wine plays a significant role in Jewish practice. In addition to its ritual purposes, wine and other alcoholic beverages can bring people together but also tear them apart. Together, we will explore and engage with the multiple voices in talmudic thought on the consumption of wine.

Kosher wine will be served during the session.
