The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) will present Curious Tales of the Talmud: Finding Yourself in the Legends of Our Sages, the institute's new six-session course that will begin Monday.

Rabbi Elazar Green of Chabad of York will present the six course sessions from 7-8:30 p.m. on Mondays at the York Jewish Community Center, 2000 Hollywood Drive in York.

Participants will encounter legends of gargantuan sea monsters, impossible feats, anthropomorphisms and riddles that challenge the foundations of the Jewish faith. In deciphering the meaning behind these strange episodes, students will discover secrets containing profound insights into the meaning of life.

Like all JLI programs, Curious Tales of the Talmud is designed to appeal to people at all levels of Jewish knowledge, including those without any prior experience or background in Jewish learning. All JLI courses are open to the public and attendees need not be affiliated with a particular synagogue, temple or other house of worship.
