Shabbat Bet Midrash
Torah study is at the heart of what it means to grow as a Jew.  In the Bet Midrash (House of Study) we’ll study the texts of our tradition: Bible, Midrash, Talmud, Hasidism, and modern texts as well.  On select Shabbat mornings, we’ll meet in our Bet Midrash to mine our tradition for the wisdom for our lives today.  Here are some of our topics from recent sessions: The Meaning of the Shofar, The Jewish Calendar, and Jewish Views on Gun Control.  For more information, please contact Rabbi Rubenstein at
