“In the words of Professor Louis Finkelstein, ‘When I pray I speak to God; when I study God speaks to me.’ Come join the conversation this year at TBA; come for prayer, for study and for a deeper connection with God and your Jewish life.”

Humash with Rashi with Rabbi Adam Kligfeld
Wednesdays, 8:30 - 9:30 a.m.
Study Rashi's original Hebrew commentary on the text of the Torah. No Hebrew knowledge is required per se, but willingness to learn and grow is! No advance registration required. Drop-ins welcome!
Thursdays, 8:30 - 9:30 a.m.
Jeremiah lived through the destruction of the first temple and the beginning of the exile. He contends with theological issues that emerge from destruction – outrage at God, hope in return and rebuilding, criticism of the people of Israel. Join Rabbi Lucas as we study this Biblical text together in Hebrew and English. No prior knowledge necessary.
Mini-Class on the Daily Siddur with Rabbi Avi Havivi
Tuesdays, 8:10 - 8:25 a.m.

Shabbat Morning Mishnah Study
Saturdays, 9:20 a.m. - 9:40 a.m.
Join fellow community members in a weekly reading and discussion of the Mishnah and commentary in Hebrew and English. For 20 years, the group has studied one tractate after another, typically one mishnah per week. Learning is primarily lay led by volunteers, on a rotational basis, in the Dorff-Nelson Chapel. A great way to start your Shabbat morning at Temple Beth Am.
