Back by popular demand. This successful series which began last year invites a different teacher each week to guide us in study. A Beit Midrash is both a place and an experience. A Beit Midrash literally is a Home of Study, a room filled with Jewish texts traditional and modern. A Beit Midrash is also an experience in which traditional Jewish texts are studied to seek out meaning and understanding. Judaism imagines relationships between people mediated by text as groups of learners work together to wrestle with a text until it yields blessing.
This year our overarching study theme will be – The 613 Mitzvot.
January 21 – Rabbi Debi Wechsler – Introduction to the 613 Mitzvot January 28 – Rabbi Rami Schwartzer – Forgotten Things February 4 – Rabbi Nina Beth Cardin – The Prohibition Against Wasting February 11 – Rabbi Gus Buchdahl – Tzitzit
Beit Midrash is generously funded this year by the Hoffberger Foundation for Torah Study.
