Tradition, independence, Talmud at synagogue

From page A6 | April 15, 2012 |

Moulie Vidas, an assistant professor in the religious studies department at UC Davis, will talk about “The Audacity of the Rabbis: Tradition, Independence and the Talmud,” at Congregation Bet Haverim on Thursday, April 26, as part of its Jubilee Year Lifelong Learning series.

The talk begins at 7 p.m. in the Social Hall. The synagogue is at 1715 Anderson Road in Davis.

Religion in late antiquity is an area of focus for Vidas. His work, “Tradition and the Formation of the Talmud,” examines the composition practices that formed the Babylonian Talmud and also places these practices in several conversations that took place between Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians in late ancient Mesopotamia.

In recognition of its 50th anniversary, the Yolo County synagogue celebrates an important connection with UCD with a Lifelong Learning series featuring members of the UCD faculty and other noted presenters.

“Our synagogue has thrived on a sense of partnership with UC Davis over five decades,” said Rabbi Greg Wolfe, leader of the 280-family congregation, in a news release. “This series highlights that dynamic connection.”

Aziza Khazzoom, an Israeli sociologist serving as the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Visiting Israeli Professor for the 2012 academic year at UCD, will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 24. Her talk is titled “Whither ethnic difference? Similarities in the Immigration Experiences of Polish and Iraqi Olim of the 1950s.”

All of the events are free and open to the public. Congregation Bet Haverim, a Reform congregation, serves all of Yolo County and surrounding areas.

For more information about the Jubilee Year Lifelong Learning Series, email Steve Cohen at steve.cohen@gmail.com or Joy Cohan at joycohan1@gmail.com, or contact the synagogue at (530) 758-0842 or office@bethaverim.org.
