When is a Wall Really a Wall? Date: January 25, 2010 - 7:30pmLocation: Yeshivat Hadar, 190 Amsterdam Ave., at 69th St. This week's class will be taught by Jaclyn Rubin, and it is entitled, “When is a Wall Really a Wall?” In both Eiruvin and Sukkah, the Rabbis learn that a wall, to be classified as a wall, must be at least 10 tefahim high (about 3 feet). As we examine this requirement, we will think about the connection between humans and God and the gap between heaven and earth. Along the way, we will talk about empty space, sukkot, the Temple, and cherubim. Find out what they all have to do with each other, and when a wall is really a wall. Jaclyn Rubin graduated from Barnard and the Jewish Theological Seminary with B.A.’s in English and Talmud, respectively. Jaclyn holds an M.A. in Talmud from the Jewish Theological Seminary, and completed a year in the Drisha Scholar's Circle. A fellow in the first summer of Yeshivat Hadar, she is now learning there full time. Event Types: Hadar Beit Midrash Read more about When is a Wall Really a Wall?
