来自THE TALMUD: A METHODOLOGICAL INTRODUCTION的热门评论
Thank you for the clear instruction about a difficult topic of study. I marvel at the Talmud and the Rabbis who contributed to the wisdom contained within.
Informative and deatiled. A bit more practical context for those unfamiliar with the jewish tradition would have helped put this on 5-star level :)
Very interesting peek into the world of Talmud (and interesting to this non-Jewish student). I like that the Hebrew-reading student can access the original texts too.
I was a good course. I learned many things about Talmud that I did nit know before. It gave me a good understanding while reading the book The Talmud.
