Lunch and Learns
After services on Shabbat mornings, we gather for deeper study of the week’s Torah portion. We explore different perspectives and insights and how to integrate the lessons of the portion into our lives. People with various levels of knowledge generally attend and have lively, respectful and interesting discussions. We actively seek out diverse opinions.
In 5781 (2020-21) we will take a deep dive into Jewish ethics and their application to our lives today in a series of classes led by Rabbi Leis. Topics will include the ethics of speech and medical ethics. These classes are suitable for all, with no prerequisites.
We also offer periodic classes for serious learners on diverse topics, from Abraham Joshua Heschel and modern Jewish philosophy to introduction to the Talmud and introduction to prayer to the history of liturgy. In 5780 we studied the Hartman Institute’s course Together & Apart, which addresses on one of the most pressing issues facing the Jewish world today: how we move from being a people with no permanent home to one with two homes.
Class: Jewish Ethics for Bewildered Times
Sundays, Nov 15, Dec 13, Jan 17, 31, Feb 14, 28; 10 am – 11:15 am
Punched in the gut by the election season and its aftermath? Affirming core Jewish values in an inclusive and respectful learning community is a way out of the morass of confusion and disillusionment. We will explore Jewish ethics to be proudly lived in these times.
You can think of this class as a Jewish ethics spiritual workout and discussion!
