Beginnings of Judaism – Part 3
Mondays at noon beginning on September 14, 12:00-1:30 pm
Judaism has had a long and rich history that reflects and was influenced by the conditions under which the Jewish people have lived for centuries. And yet, Judaism remained a distinct faith that influenced the cultures and religion of others. Rabbi Bob Orkand will continue his exploration of Jewish history, beginning with a look at the Pharisees and Sadducees and their varying interpretations of Jewish law and practice.
Please note that since each session stands alone, it is not necessary to have participated in prior sessions. All are welcome.
Finding Our Jewish Values in the Torah
Shabbat mornings beginning on September 12, 9:00-10:00 am
Each week we will focus upon a single Jewish moral or ethical value found in that week's parashah (Torah portion). These will include, but not be limited to: Justice, Compassion, Environmental Ethics, Business Ethics. A variety of rabbinic sources will enrich our exploration as we seek to apply each week’s value to our lives today.
Torah Study is Great, but What Happens in the REST of the Hebrew Bible?
Beginning on September 12th, continuing the first Shabbat of the month, 10:30-11:30 am
Have you ever wondered where the Biblical stories of our ancestors go after Moses' death at the end of the Book of Deuteronomy? Our Torah-study cycle allows us to spend a lot of time on the five books of Torah, but what about the rest of what appears in the Hebrew Bible? We will do our study online, beginning with the book of Nahum. No prior knowledge is needed. All are welcome! Registration required.
