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

If there were ever a time for miracles, we are living in it. Our holy texts are filled with miraculous events that we often wave off as hyperbole or the work of imagination. However, while we may be doubtful of miracles, we can believe in the hope and optimism they provide in times of hardship.
For our spring session of Wednesday Study Group, we will explore the ten plagues, the parting of the sea, manna from heaven, and the events of Hanukkah to discover what meaning miracles have to offer. Join us as we search for the miracles of our tradition in hopes that they provide some hope and light.
Wednesdays at 1:00 pm
