Adult Jewish Learning
At this consequential moment for our country, we’re proud to offer a learning series honoring the life and legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg z”l. These sessions are free and open to all. We ask that you please register in advance.
Local clergy from many denominations will address essential topics throughout the year:
• Believing again: maintaining faith in difficult times
• Who is in and who is out? Boundaries and inclusion
in our traditions
• Abraham and Sarah: Parents of three peoples
• Slavery and Liberation as religious ideas
To whom are we responsible? Is it better to give anonymously, or publicly? How does giving to others help us?
No background knowledge is necessary. Register by Tues Oct 20.
Advanced registration for this Zoom Meeting is required. After registering, participants will receive a confirmation email which contains information about joining the meeting.

You’ve probably heard of the Talmud, but what is it? Why does it hold such a prominent position in Jewish learning, law, and
morality? In this class, we will take a look at the histories, mysteries, and major figures of the Talmud. We will also study some of its texts. No prior experience with Babylonian Aramaic required. All sources will be available in English translation. New students, please contact Rabbi Moss before joining the class.
