Special Course Announcement – The Early Rabbis

The Early Rabbis: Mishnah, Midrash and Mysticism

MJTI LogoIt’s not too late to still register for a special 6-week course on The Early Rabbis: Mishnah, Midrash and Mysticism, taught by Rabbi Joshua Brumbach. The course is offered through as special partnership with the Messianic Jewish Theological Institute.

The course will be offered online and will begin Monday, January 12, 2015.

Early rabbinic literature plays an important role in recording and codifying the development and formation of what would become Rabbinic Judaism, and lays an important foundation for subsequent rabbinic literature. Therefore the study of early rabbinic literature is essential for all students of Judaism. This class will explore the earliest forms of rabbinic literature through readings in the Mishnah, Midrash and early Mysticism – three distinct and unique textual traditions.

Special tuition for the onsite class is only $99 for both credit and audit. This course is open to anyone and there are no prerequisites.

About Rabbi Joshua

I'm a Rabbi, writer, thinker, mountain biker, father and husband ... not necessarily in that order. According to my wife, however, I'm just a big nerd. I have degrees in dead languages and ancient stuff. I have studied in various Jewish institutions, including an Orthodox yeshiva in Europe. I get in trouble for making friends with perfect strangers, and for standing on chairs to sing during Shabbos dinner. In addition to being the Senior Rabbi of Simchat Yisrael Messianic Synagogue in West Haven, CT, I write regularly for several publications and speak widely in congregations and conferences. My wife is a Southern-fried Jewish Beltway bandit and a smokin' hot human rights attorney... and please don’t take offense if I dump Tabasco sauce on your cooking.
