The Talmud Wins Big in the Knesset Elections

The 19th Knesset will include Dr. Ruth Calderon, who completed her PhD in Talmud at Hebrew University and was the founder of Beit Midrash Elul and Alma College. The topic of her dissertation was “Literary Tropes in the Aggadic narratives of the Babylonian Talmud.” When interviewed on Channel Two News she was asked if Talmud was a good preparation for politics, and her answer was that it was a very good preparation since, in part, the Talmud addresses how to build a society. Dr. Calderon, along with her fellow new MK’s Rabbi Dov Lipman and Dr. Aliza Lavie, will surely be bringing different voices that address Judaism and Jewish texts to more Israelis.
