We offer two groups and two weekly opportunities for Torah Study at Temple Emanuel.

Beginner Torah Study Monday, 7:00 – 8:30pm

All are welcome to join our discussions of the weekly Torah portion and the other books comprising the Hebrew Bible. This is a drop-in class; all are encouraged to participate regardless of levels of expertise. Attend class at any time – everyone’s point of view is welcome. The group is informal and led by group members.  Each class begins with a summary of the Torah portion of the week, followed by a discussion of various interpretations and insights from Reform and other commentators.  Discussion includes the other books of the Hebrew Bible.  Emphasis is on what our holy texts meant when they were written and what they mean in today’s society.

Minyan and Torah Study Saturday, 9:00am

The Torah Study group reads and discusses the weekly Torah portion using a variety of texts to help understand the meaning and implications of the text.  The group is lay-led and all are welcome.
