LA'ASOKE B'DIVREI TORAH: Soaking Up Words of Torah
Topic: Text and Thought
This is a drop-in class for people at all levels of Jewish learning to come together for a Shabbat experience of study and conversation. Refreshments are served. We read from the Torah portion of the week (in English), discussing many related issues as questions arise. Our approach is very open to a wide range of opinions. We take a non-literalist, non-supernatural view of sacred text. Knowledge of Hebrew is not required. Beginners are welcome. You may bring your own text for comparison. Reconstructionist text is provided.
Your participation is welcome.
