Our Sabbath morning Torah study explores the weekly parashah from a variety of perspectives, including traditional, progressive, mystical and literary.
What happened “In the beginning”? How we ended up being slaves? What’s the deal with sacrifice (and why we stopped)? Just what we’re counting in the Book of Numbers? If the Ten Commandments really does appear twice in the Torah?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions (or if you have questions of your own), then join us at Temple Emanu-El’s weekly Torah study.
Through engaging, thoughtful conversation and lively debate, we plumb the depths of our most important sacred text and discover the personalities, challenges and themes in the narrative that still affect our lives today.
Torah Study meets each Saturday, prior to our worship service, from 9:15 AM to 10:15 AM. Sessions this year will be led by our new rabbinic intern, Alexis Pinsky. No previous knowledge is required. Come regularly, or drop in when you can. Coffee and bagels are provided; you contribute your questions and ideas.
There is no better way to start off your Sabbath morning than with a taste of Torah. We hope to see you there! (Enter at the Marvin and Elisabeth Cassell Community House, One East 65th Street.)
