Torah Study w/Mat Wilson
Thursdays, Noon — via Zoom
All are welcome for an engaging discussion of this week’s Torah portion and how it impacts our lives. See the weekly e-news for the Zoom link.
Not just for b’nai mitzvah students, but for anyone who wants to better understand the flow of the Shabbat morning liturgy. Each session (A-F) focuses on a different section of the service, in rotation. You don’t have to attend them in order.
There are two remaining, from 11:00am – Noon, on Zoom
(See weekly e-news for Zoom link)
E: Choreography of Prayer & Our Ancestral Roots: Kaddish – Apr 9
F: Climbing the Mountain: Torah Service – May 14
3rd Sunday of the month, 3:00pm
Join the group for a monthly discussion with the Rabbi and non-Jews, new-Jews and any-Jews interested in exploration. All are welcome, but this is an especially good opportunity for people new to Judaism in general and TBI in particular to learn more and get to know fellow explorers in a welcoming, casual setting. Questions? Contact Mark Watson.
The Vinkl (Yiddish Corner)
Usually the 1st & 3rd Mondays of the month, 2:00pm — via Zoom
(Contact Ellen Rifkin for the Zoom link.)
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 encouraged!
Shabbat Torah Study
Saturdays via Zoom, 8:45 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. All levels of experience welcome. Text study is done in English, with occasional close examination of the Hebrew text in an inclusive manner.
