Torah Study

Join us on Saturday mornings in-person* or over Zoom at 11:00 am for Torah Study. Torah Study typically concludes around 12:30 pm.

*If you would like to attend in person, you must be fully vaccinated and wear a mask. If you are unable to get vaccinated or wear a mask, we have a laptop and camera set up so that you can still participate via Zoom. To receive the Zoom link, please contact Rabbi Ahuva.

(Prior to the pandemic, Torah Study would begin with a potluck brunch. At this point in time, we are temporarily skipping the food, but still providing some time to socialize before we delve into the text together.)

If you are attending via Zoom, you may wish to purchase your own copy of the Plaut Chumash or JPS Tanakh. But you can also find the biblical text and a number of commentaries on Sefaria.org.

We are currently studying the Book of Leviticus, a few verses at a time. This means we are not following the schedule of the weekly Torah portion (Parashat Hashavua), but we are able to take our time exploring each word, verse, and chapter of the Torah.

You do not need to know how to read Hebrew or have any prior experience studying Jewish sacred texts. All are welcome. We hope to see you there!

*Please note that on some Saturday mornings, we have a prayer service instead of Torah Study. You can check the Or Ami calendar to find out which program we are offering on a particular date. Dress code is casual for Torah Study, but community members tend to dress up for services, especially if there is a Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
