Don’t know your Mishnah from your Gemara? Want to know when the Talmud written, why and by whom? Curious about what exactly is in this record of discussions pertaining to Jewish law, ethics, philosophy, customs and history? Wonder just how it is used today?

Come find the answers as we screen director Pierre-Henry Salfati‘s incisive 2006 documentary exploring the origins and history of the Talmud, regarded as the most influential text on the everyday conduct of Jewish life. Through expert analysis and in-depth interviews, Salfati goes to great lengths to demystify this vast collection of philosophical commentary and debate, which has been called “the hidden face of the Torah.”

Following the one-hour film, a team of Boulder rabbis will continue to demystify the Talmud and answer questions.
