The Limmud Chavruta Project is delighted to present its fourth downloadable Chavruta study materials for your Tikkun Leyl Shavuot. This year the material is on the theme of Peoplehood, and invites us to explore the relationship between choice and recognition, the diversity of Jewish identity today, and the very essence of what it means to be a people. Each source consists of one or more texts, plus some discussion questions to get the conversation flowing.
These pages contain six sources which address the theme of ‘Peoplehood’ – exploring the relationship between choice and recognition, God and scripture, and the diversity of Jewish identity today. Each source consists of one or more texts, plus some discussion questions to get the conversation flowing. We have also included reflections upon beginning and ending your learning.
It is not necessary to explore every text, nor to answer every question. You may wish to study with a partner or in a group (or both) and the session may last for twenty minutes or for hours on end ... the decisions are yours! However you choose to learn or teach the material, we hope that you will find it both stimulating and illuminating.
