Current Classes

Join Torah Café every Saturday morning at 9:30 AM as we explore the Torah through The Social Justice Torah Commentary in 5783.

In this course, we will examine the many ways that we bring the words of our texts into our daily lives. We’ll look at the hints and clues in the letters of sacred Jewish texts: the Torah, the Prophets, the Talmud (no previous Hebrew knowledge required). We’ll examine structure and authorship. We’ll discuss the commentary of yesterday. We’ll share where we stand today. Dive into a sea of knowledge.

Reclaiming the Talmud

For centuries, Reform Judaism relegated the Talmud to the periphery of its Torah-centric practice. During our sessions together, we will reclaim the Talmud for ourselves by reflecting on the rabbis’ most absurd ideas, learning the rationale behind many of our religious customs, and wrestling with questions that still agitate us today.
