Adult Education

Torah Study

Tradition teaches that when people come together to study Torah, the Shechinah (God’s presence) dwells among them. Each Shabbat morning, before the service, we come together to read through and discuss the Torah portion of the week. This is led by either Rabbi Brown or the congregant who is leading that week’s service.

Participants are encouraged to ask questions, pose possible interpretations, and bring their life experiences to the discussion in an atmosphere of active listening and cooperative dialogue. It is a great opportunity for us all to increase our learning.
