|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Sunday, repeating until May 20, 2019

Torah 101 (9:00AM) – If you missed the First Book of Samuel last year, rest easy, as Torah 101 will take up a reading of The Second Book of Samuel this season beginning on Sunday September 16th from 9-10am. Led by congregants for congregants and requiring no previous knowledge, we will meet every Sunday during the school year, in order to read one short chapter together and then talk about its interpretation, both from a historical point of view as well as its meaning and relevance for us today. Some of the themes raised by this very important Biblical text include the origins of political power, the values underlying moral leadership, the corruptibility of leaders, the nature of love and friendship and our connection to a higher power. Please join us for a spirited discussion in which all viewpoints are welcome. The class does not require any permanent commitment and all are encouraged to drop by at any point during the semester.
