Learning is a lifelong commitment and a journey that is personal and profound. While we encourage everyone to study Torah on their personal journey, everyone knows that road trips are better shared with friends! So we invite you to embark on the journey of learning with us, next to one another, and close to the source of knowledge–Torah. The Talmud instructs us to go and study: Tzei ulmad. We invite you to come study.
If you only have an hour, try Lunch and Learn on Tuesdays with Rabbi Tom or one of his frequent guests. A Friday evening is more your thing? You can join us for an insightful iOneg where special speakers present interesting, relevant topics (or, we dance! Really, we actually dance). Saturday morning brings us around Joseph’s Table. Central Havurah is a series of evenings you can attend on First Thursdays. This year our Speaker Series in January covered the topic Path to Peace: A Way Forward in the Middle East, with Senator George Mitchell and Alon Sachar.
Yes, there are many learning opportunities, because we realize there are many reasons people come in search of knowledge. To learn the texts, the customs, the nuances, yes, but also to learn where they fit in, and how they fit in. Our learning journey extends to Tikkun Olam, from Feeding the Hungry the fourth Monday of every month, to Rabbi Tom’s Lunch ‘N Learn sessions. This semester we look at “The Latest Trends in Jewish Life”: Things are changing very fast in the Jewish world. What you know about Jewish life may already be from a decade ago. Come and find out about the latest trends, some good and some not so good. From the most innovative synagogues and the coolest apps to the most surprising demographic statistics, you will discover that there is a great deal about Jewish life today that you didn’t know.
