The Vinkl (Yiddish Corner)
Two Mondays of the month, via Zoom
(Check the calendar & contact Ellen Rifkin)
2:00-3:30pm

Why come to the Vinkl? Yiddish, or mama-loshn, is one of several languages with which we Jews are blessed. Known for its warmth and wit, it may evoke memories for you, or perhaps be the gate to new knowledge and pleasures. Join us for leyenen (reading), shmuesn (that’s right—shmoozing!), lively debate, and almost always, music with heart-stirring lyrics. New learners receive encouragement.

Online Torah Study with Rabbi Ruhi Sophia, via Zoom
Thursdays, Noon

All are welcome to join Rabbi Ruhi Sophia for a discussion of this week’s Torah portion and how it impacts our lives.

Shabbat Torah Study, via Zoom
Saturdays, 9:00 am / 8:30 am when b’nai mitzvah celebrated at Shabbat Services

All are welcome to join a lively exploration of the weekly Torah portion. Torah study is either rabbi-facilitated or lay-led. All levels of experience welcome. Text study is done in English, with occasional close examination of the Hebrew text in an inclusive manner.
