from the maccabees to the mishnah

The Old Town Irregulars is a group of men and women who meet on alternate Tuesdays to explore the meaning of Holy Scripture in our daily lives.  See you on alternate Tuesdays at 7AM at the Table Talk Restaurant! All are welcome!

We have selected From the Maccabees to the Mishnah (3rd edition) by Shaye J.D. Cohen as our new course of study. We are going to review the first two chapters on 1) “Ancient Judaism” and 2) “Jews and Gentiles” (pp.1-49).

Here is a link to the new text:
