We explore Torah on three levels: What meaning did it hold in its original ancient Near East setting? How have our sages and commentators understood the text over the centuries? What personal and communal meaning does it hold for us today? Every session offers learning, lively interchange and ample opportunity for questions and discussion. People of all levels and backgrounds are welcome, and Hebrew knowledge is not required. No prior study of the Torah or Hebrew knowledge is needed. It is not necessary to read ahead or prepare. Although this is an ongoing class, drop-in attendance is welcomed. Come at 8:30 AM for bagels, coffee and friendly conversation.
