    Talmud Study now Mandatory in South Korea

    The headline did have to be modified slightly, as the author explained:

    After receiving a personal thank you letter from the South Korean Embassy in Israel for this blog post, I have made a few minor updates to the article below at the Embassy’s request, to better reflect Talmud (탈무드) Study in Korea.

    Let the record reflect that the study of Talmud is not mandatory in South Korea, but is commonly taught at home.

    I live in South Korea. Let the record reflect that the study of Talmud is NOT mandatory in South Korea, and it is NOT commonly taught at home. The book you see in the article is NOT the Talmud as we all know it, but a collection of stories from and about the Talmud. I hope this will stop the Korea Talmud orgy.

    It’s a children’s book, similar to Aesop’s fables, and treated in the same way. The sad thing is that so many people think that’s the Talmud.
