Open, Shut Them...Rabbinic Legal Loopholes Re-Examined

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Talmudic logic has a penchant for legal loopholes. This session explores whether the Talmudic rabbis saw themselves as closing loopholes or opening new ones; what makes a loophole legitimate, and what makes it out of bounds? We take a trip through history and across disciplines to offer insight into these questions.
