Shabbat Morning Torah/Tanach Study Group

Participant-led group meets on Shabbat mornings to discuss the Torah and the rest of the Tanach over refreshments

For the study of Torah encompasses them all

A lively group of congregants and visitors gather over refreshments each Shabbat morning at 9:00 a.m. to discuss the week's Torah/Haftarah portion. A member of the group introduces the portion and the conversation takes off—generally exploring issues and insights raised by the portion, often touching on such familiar themes as religious experience, the meaning of ritual or Jewish ethics, but frequently going in totally unexpected directions. The formal conversation ends about 10:00 a.m., but the thoughts (and friendly arguments) are likely to continue through the morning service and into the week. Everyone is welcome. No prerequisites or commitment. Drop in and share your thoughts with us.
