We are currently studying Brachot, the first section of the Talmud. Interested? Contact Mitch:
"You too can give a D'var Torah"
Between October 29th and January 14 we will read the book of Braishit. This first book of
the Torah is full of stories of love, conflict and intrigue as families try to grapple with both the mundane and the extraordinary. Here is your chance to prepare a dvar Torah on the lives of our earliest ancestors and their families. If you are interested, please let Mitch know. A little secret: the preparation is often the best part of the process.
