The Origins of Rabbinic Judaism: Ancient Israel and the Life and Times of Hillel and Shammai

- CST
Zoom Finkel

Rabbi Allan Finkel grew up Orthodox at the Talmud Torah Synagogue in Winnipeg’s North End and is a graduate of Joseph Wolinsky Collegiate. He later wandered through Conservative Judaism and then settled into Reform Judaism over 30 years ago. He is currently the Rabbi and spiritual leader at Temple Shalom, in Winnipeg.


Rabbinic Judaism didn’t just “happen” after the destruction of the Second Temple. In this session, Rabbi Allan Finkel will explore the preceding 1,000-year history of ancient Israel from the days of King Solomon to the times of Hillel & Shammai, and the profound role they had in shaping the Rabbinic Judaism that ensured our survival into modern times.
