Zoom Classes with
The History of Jewish Religious Conflict - On Summer Hiatus
Mondays, 9:00-10:15 AM
The class will look at Jewish religious conflict from the Biblical Era, through the Hasmonean reign and the Dead Sea sects, into the rabbinic era -- Pharisees and Sadducees, Kara’ites, the Medieval Period -- Ashkenazim and Sephardim, and in the Modern Era -- Chasidim, Reform, Orthodox, and Conservative, and secularism in America and Israel."
Parashat Ha-Shavu'a -- The weekly Torah reading Wednesdays, 7:00-8:00 PM
Each week we will look at the weekly Parashah from both the traditional rabbinic and often midrashic points of view as well as from the point of view of modern historians. Although we would love you to join us for all classes, as classes are formed through sharing, you can join the lesson for that week's reading. Recommended: the New JPS translation, but feel free to use any translation.
Mitzvah 613 - Thursdays,12:00 noon - 1:00 PM.
Bring your lunch!
More than a "good deed," as it is popularly known, mitzvah in a deeper and truer sense means, literally, command. I will provide the teachings from Sefer ha-Chinuch (likely 13th C; Barcelona; anonymous). This work numbers the mitzvot as they appear in the Torah, adding rabbinic teachings and the author's own insights. Recommended: Have a translation of the Torah with you.
Kabbalat Shabbat - Fridays, time varies
Abbreviated services (including L'cha Dodi; though not Shabbat evening services) and the singing of a few Zemirot. Benefits include -- spiritual ones as we enter Shabbat, congregational togetherness before Shabbat, and learning about something that we will sing.
