Torah for Everyone
Are you curious about what's actually in the Torah, and whether it might be meaningful to you? While Torah is the core of Jewish tradition, it can seem intimidating, irrelevant, boring, or even offensive.
Yet, explored from a sophisticated, adult perspective, rather than the literal understanding or children’s Torah stories we may have experienced, the Torah can be a rich source of wisdom for grappling with today’s real-life issues: ethics, family, work, politics, money, justice …
Join us to explore the Torah in an open environment in this twice-monthly class led by Rabbi Bridget Wynne. Come to one session, a few, or the series.
WHO: All are welcome, and no experience with Jewish study or knowledge of Hebrew is necessary. Please feel free to invite friends who may be interested.
WHEN: We meet twice monthly on Wednesdays, 7:00-9:00pm. Dates are below.
WHERE: We currently meet online due to health and safety issues.
HOW: The next session is on October 27, and info and registration instructions will soon be posted here.
Participants prepare by reading brief materials before the session at which we'll discuss them, so we recommend that you register early enough give yourself time to do this. Rabbi Bridget will send the materials to you by email after you register.
QUESTIONS: Contact us by email or at 510-545-9977.
