To glean deeper meaning and understanding from the scrolls that serve as the basis of our religion, traditions, and culture, join our rabbis, cantors, and teachers every Saturday in an exploration of the words, phrases, concepts, and beliefs of our tradition. No prior Torah study experience or Hebrew skills are needed.
