We read in our morning prayers “talmud torah k’neged kulam”– Torah study is equivalent to all of the other mitzvot”. Jewish tradition assigns great importance to the act of learning because the nature of study not only nourishes our hearts, minds and souls, but it leads us to action.

Midrash on the Weekly Torah Portion Torah/Bible Study

Wednesday Mornings
10:00am – 11:30am

Dive into the weekly Torah portion. No experience required. 

This seminar focuses on the weekly Torah reading with occasional excursions to other elements of Jewish life.

What is Midrash? It is the Rabbis’ way of fleshing out the cryptic Torah text with stories and seeking psychological insight through a close probing of Torah language. Start your day by delving into these rich and insightful texts! Grab a cup of coffee and join our clergy for this always exciting exploration of our Torah and its many faceted lessons. Drop-ins welcome!

Talmud Study

Introduction to Talmud study, meets on Wednesdays, 11:30 – 12:30, following Torah Study.

Yevamot: a discussion about procreation: is there an obligation to raise children? How many? Gender? How do we take these Talmudic discussions and apply them to our community and lives today?

Join the rabbis of the Talmud for a dynamic discussion of Judaism and Jewish law and behavior: a way of thinking and looking at the world then and now. We are looking at various aspects of the relationship between spouses: inception of marriage, during the marriage, after the marriage whether by divorce or death. We study in English and its relevance for today’s world. Please join us as we continue our stimulating discussions.

For information please call Rabbi Beryl Padorr, Shared Vision Coordinator (913-663-1805; sharedvision@bnaijehudah.org). Or just show up!
