The 13th Cycle Begins!
Here is one of the things I love about Jewish study: everything starts with a question. The Talmud reading begins with a question. Actually, the mishnah begins with a question. The gemara (commentary) begins with a question about that question. Actually, two questions about that first question. And so it goes. No statements of ideology or dogma, and most people expect from a religious text. Rather the mind opens to investigation and doubt. How do you know what you know and what if you are mistaken? Prove it yourself and prove yourself. Welcome to the world of Talmud.
