Berowne: What is the end of study, let me know?
King: Why, that to know which else we would not know.
I just finished a weekend at the Open Talmud Project, an annual community-run weekend aimed at Talmud study for everybody. It was a bit of a shock as I haven’t done Talmud properly for a few years, since my hardcore phase just after university when I was missing academia.
What I like best about Talmud study is that it’s very difficult lifelong learning that doesn’t have a point.
