Not Just the Weekly Torah Portion

An event every week that begins at 11:00am on Thursday, repeating until May 24, 2018
Bring your questions and opinions as we explore a variety of Jewish texts and issues. Discussions will often relate to the weekly Torah portion or its accompanying reading from the Prophets. Other Biblical or Rabbinic texts that raise questions of contemporary interest will also be explored. All interest and knowledge levels are welcome; Previous Hebrew or Torah study is not required.
