Traditional Torah Study

Please join Rabbi Locketz, Rabbi Crimmings and Rabbi Cohen for two opportunities each week to study Torah in our Jerusalem Room (Conference Room A). The portion for the current week is discussed. Sunday session will only meet on weeks when Religious School is in session.

Sunday mornings from 9:00 am - 9:45 am (During Religious School Year) and Thursdays from noon to 1:00 pm (Bring your lunch!)

Beyond Torah Study

Thursdays at 11:00 am, right before Torah Study.

Have you ever wondered what is contained in the rest of the Tanach … our Hebrew Bible? Rarely do we have the opportunity to study contents beyond the Five Books of Moses. But now we do. Our new Beyond Torah Study class will focus on what comes after Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Join Rabbi Locketz, Rabbi Crimmings and Rabbi Cohen as we study line by line, the rest of the story. This class will meet in the Jerusalem Room (Conference Room A).

Intro to Talmud Class

The second Thursday of the month, (September - May) 7:00 - 8:30 pm

This adult education class will take us on a journey through the literature known as The Talmud. We will explore a variety of issues and trace their answers through Jewish history in a way that will help us to apply Jewish principles and ideals to almost any question that we face today. Please reserve 7:00-8:30 pm on the 2nd Thursday of each month and join us at Bet Shalom for this fascinating learning process.
