Torah Study

Saturdays from 10:00-10:45am

We are Studying the Prophets!  In a time of great disease in the world, in an era filled with anxiety, violence and pain, it will be helpful to study the Prophets together on Saturday mornings. In general, the prophets lived during difficult times and as spokespeople for God, they were charged with helping the People of Israel rise-up from their depression, angst and acting in ways that did not serve them. The prophets were men and women who focused on social justice and Tikkun Olam, fixing the world and they have much to say to us, still today.

No experience is necessary and we will explore the Prophets through discussion of the weekly Haftarah portion.
