Friday Noon Study Group

Fridays, 12-1 pm

The Friday Noon Study Group is currently exploring some of the many controversies that reside at the heart of Jewish history and theology.  

  • Is collective punishment ever morally acceptable?  
  • Is the inclusion and equality of women in Judaism complete today?
  • What constitutes legitimate dissent to religious authority?
  • Should Judaism today be based on reason or revelation?  
  • Is a Jewish homeland the only real answer to anti-Semitism?  

Meet the Midrash

Wednesdays, noon to 1:00 pm

Out of the texts of the Torah, the Rabbis created teachings bringing deeper meanings to the wisdom of the Jewish people known as Midrash. Each week we will explore some of these teachings based on the weekly Torah portion.
