Rabbinic Texts, I Miss You

My instructor for Rabbinic Texts gave us quite the break last semester. We weren't required to hand in our take-home final until this week. This means that I haven't thought to much about it since the end of the class.

The exam was pretty easy to work through, but I forgot how hard it is to work with tosefta and mishnah. It's organized in a way that is just strange to me. But as I was struggling to get through the topics, I realized something. I really missed that class. I miss translating the sections with one of my friends. I miss being completely wrong about my translation, but still getting a lot of information from the text.

I cannot wait to work on that more in the future.
