Please note that starting August 28, 2021, Our Early Torah times will shift forward by 30 minutes. The reading session will start at 8:00 am and the clergy-led discussion will begin at 8:30. WHC’s Saturday Morning Worship will also begin 30 minutes earlier, at 10:00 am.
Every Shabbat morning, we begin the day with an informal group at Temple to study parashat hashavua, the weekly Torah portion, in English. Led by one of the clergy, we analyze, question, and reflect on Judaism’s central text. All are welcome — just occasionally or every week — and absolutely no background knowledge or familiarity with Hebrew is necessary!
Join us at 8:00 am to read this week’s portion together as a group.
Our clergy-led discussion will begin at 8:30 am.
This program will take place on-site at Temple. If you plan to attend in person, please arrive a few minutes early. You will be asked to complete a wellness screening at the door.
For those who would like to continue to join us virtually, this program will also take place on Zoom.
