Is there a maximum or minimum of what a husband should give his wife in her ketubah? What responsibilities does a woman have to her husband? What is the ideal length of time of a betrothal? Through our study of Af Al Pi, the fifth chapter of Ketubot, we will explore the ways that the rabbis answers to these questions and more. This class will also consider the structure and language of the Gemara from both a traditional and an academic perspective. Class time will be divided between seder and shiur. The ability to read unvocalized Hebrew is required and previous experience learning Jewish text in its original is recommended.
