Whole and Broken Tablets: Aging in Rabbinic Literature


In this four-session course, we'll study passages from Tanakh, Talmud, and classical Midrash about old age. Beyond the general reverence for the elderly that the Rabbis demanded, what did they think about the actual experience of aging? What are its gifts and challenges? We will consider the implications of the Rabbis' thinking about old age both from the perspective of those aging, and from those who love and care for them.
