Our Talmud class of eighth and
ninth grade boys is studying the
first chapter of Bays Metzia. It
discusses the laws of lost articles.
Most of the text is in the Aramaic
language and without vowels, but
we have learned to translate and
discuss all of the Talmud, Rashi
and Tosafot commentaries in He-
(The fifth graders learn Mishna
without the Talmud commentary,
the sixth graders learn Talmud on
the beginners level, and the sev-
enth graders learn Talmud with
Rashi commentary only.) We pre-
pare and review our lessons with
In Talmud, the emphasis Is on
the logic and understanding of
each rabbi's opinion. This sharp-
ens our thinking and teaches us
how to cope with problems. For

This means that if we fond in
situation A that the Torah law is
lenient in the first respect but is
strict in a second, then in situation
B, where the Torah is strict even
in the first respect, it surely must
be strict in the second, also. The
Talmud applies this reasoning,
among other things, to partial
confessions in court.
Besides studying Bible, prophets,
history, Jewish law and grammar,
we spend about 10 hours a week
on Talmud study.
