The Ground on Which We Stand: Jewish Values Summoning us to Care for our Only Home

Taught by Rabbi Shelly Lewis
March 26, April 2, 9, 16
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm (On Zoom)

Explicitly and implicitly, Torah texts point to the idea that we are stewards of a planet to which we never gain title. Surprisingly visionary obligations follow to treat this earth with reverence. This course will focus on a journey through Torah and later rabbinic teaching searching for wisdom to safeguard our only shared home. The Zoom link will be provided upon registration. Click HERE to register!


 

Classes with Morat Derech Sarah Miller:

Weekly TaNaCH Study

Sundays 10:00 am - 11:30 am (In Person & On Zoom)

Have you ever wanted to read the entire Bible all the way through? Study the TaNaCH (Torah, Prophets, and Writings) as a larger spiritual and literary work, as opposed to by the parsha? Are you wondering about the larger picture and connections? Want to dive deeper into the various stories, characters, and themes? Then, this is the class for you! We will meet most Sunday mornings (unless it conflicts with other Adult Ed or holiday events). Please contact us for the Zoom link, or click HERE to view the March Adult Learning Newsletter, which has the links. Click HERE to register!

Parenting the Parsha

Shabbat Mornings, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

There is a reason the expression "it takes a village" rings true; parenting is easier when you have others to lean on. While our children don't come with a manual, Jewish text and tradition are extremely insightful into the human condition. I believe that when we seek to better understand ourselves and our past, it gives us insight into the views we have and the choices we make for the next generation. The weekly parsha is a great place to find wisdom and push us to think more deeply about who we are and why. Join us Saturday mornings, as we discuss the text, ourselves, and our children. 
*It is not a prerequisite that you have children to join and participate in this class. If you care about the next generation and want to see insights into yourself through the text, we are delighted to welcome you!


Classes with Rabbi David Booth:

Talmud Class with Rabbi Booth

Every Sunday, 10:15 am and Wednesday, 12:15 pm
Talmud is the gift and key text of the Jewish people. It is the formative text of Judaism, offering us law, theology, and practice. The Sunday morning Talmud Study Group, now in its 38th continuous year, meets at 10:15 am each Sunday morning and Wednesday afternoons at 12:15 pm to explore together the text and how it speaks to us. People bring a variety of learning from many different spheres, including engineering, psychology, and Yeshiva learning, creating a rich mix and discussion. We are currently studying Tractate Bava Kamma (The First Gate), which deals with civil matters, such as damages and torts. Newcomers are always welcome!
