“The Psalms”

Join Rabbi Fischel and the Wednesday Study community for an exploration of the Psalms. These ancient works of literature express the deep Jewish yearnings of kvetching and joy. We will explore one psalm each session through the dual lenses of commentary and art. Come discover the beauty and relevance of this ancient poetry in an open and welcoming group setting.

For the winter, our Wednesday Study Group will continue to meet virtually, on Zoom, January 4 — May 24, 2023.

Early Torah Study

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!

Saturdays

Gather to read this week’s portion together at 8:30 am
Clergy-led discussion at 9:00 am

Join us in person at Temple,* or join us on Zoom!
