Currently Class Offerings Include:

Havrei Moshe Talmud Class-Masechet Shabbat (formerly Tuesday Talmud Class)   Tuesdays at 8:30 PM
This class focuses on the text of the Talmud - what it says and how it says it. Discussions are lively, and range from legal details to the theology of commandments. All questions are fair; no belief is assumed except that study of Torah is worthwhile. Texts are in Hebrew/Aramaic and English. Participants include people who have studied Talmud before and people who have not.

Formerly the Tuesday Talmud class, it was renamed in memory of a long-time dedicated participant, Murray Rottenerg a"h, Moshe Ze'ev. For further information, contact Richard Friedman

Jews for Exegesis: Rashbam's Commentary on the Torah Portion
Thursdays at 8:30 PM
An in-depth and lively exploration of the weekly Torah portion.                           For further information, contact Richard Friedman.

Hazak Class with Rabbi Helfand: Sacred Space and Sacred Time
Thursdays at 11:00 AM
The Jewish calendar is the circadian rhythm of Jewish life. From holidays to rituals and from the mundane to the sacred, our “luni-solar” approach to sanctification of time is core to our identities. In this class, we’ll explore evolution of the calendar, how it works, and how it brings a deeper layer of meaning to daily practice, ritual, and even our ethical understandings of living as 21st century Jews.  Click HERE for previous recorded classes.
