Join us on Saturday, November 22 for an Interactive Day of Prayer, learning, and spiritual pursuit. At 9 AM there will be a “Torah Study for Everyone” session where you will have the option to choose from 2 or 3 different discussions focused on themes that come from the Torah portion for the week. Topics might include sibling rivalry - the differences between Jacob and Esau; Obeying parents vs. telling the truth - Jacob's deception (at his mother Rebecca's request) of his father Isaac; Toldot and Alternative Families.
The Interactive Day of Prayer will continue with opportunities to choose between traditional worship services, meditation and more discussion groups, followed by a delicious lunch at noon.
All are welcome. There is no charge for lunch, though we ask that you RSVP to email@example.com so that we know how much food to prepare.
The class is scheduled for Sunday, November 9 at 11AM. Learn the Hebrew letters and vowels well enough to read our prayer book in Hebrew. While we will focus on reading, this class will also teach some basic vocabulary and over-all concepts of the prayers. Taught by Rabbi Brown
