The text for our class is Settings of Silver, by Rabbi Stephen Wylen.  You can purchase this text locally at Afikomen Books on Claremont Blvd. in Berkeley. It is also available both new and used online.

I chose this book because it is accurate, complete, and has an excellent index. After class is done, it makes a nice little reference work.

Here are some lists I’ve made of books you may want to read, depending on your interests.:
