Torah & Text

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!

Schedule

Saturdays
Early informal ‘schmooze’ at 8:30 am
Clergy-led discussion at 9:00 am

Wednesday Study Group

“The Book of Jonah in a Year of Turmoil”

Global pandemic, racial injustices, and political polarization are just a few of the ways in which 2020 has challenged our strength and resiliency. The Book of Jonah raises (and maybe even answers?) some of the questions we may be dealing with as 2020 comes to a close: 

Why do we suffer? Why do people make poor decisions?
Does God test us?  If so, how do we pass? 

Join Rabbi Fischel and a great group of learners as they dive into the Book of Jonah against the backdrop of this ridiculous year. Although these questions are hard, we promise to find some light during this darkest part of our year.
