Torah on Tap: Beyond Blessings
Creating a Practice of Gratitude

Sunday November 26th – 4pm – 5:30pm
Habitat Tavern & Commons, 174 Broadway

 

In Judaism, there is a blessing for just about everything. But few, save the most observant, know them, much less use them on a regular basis to acknowledge their gratitude. What then is our practice of gratitude? Is it a mindful part of our daily lives? Or is it an intermittent and reflexive “thank you” tacked on to the end of a conversation?

This month, in honor of Thanksgiving, we’ll be sharing and discussing the importance of having or creating a practice of gratitude. What are the challenges? How might it disrupt our daily routine, both positively and negatively? Is the world ready?

All are welcome – all opinions valued. This event is free and open.  Non-alcoholic beverages are available.  Habitat does not serve food, so feel free to bring a snack or meal.

Learn to Chant Torah!
Nov 26 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

LEARN TO CHANT TORAH!

Yes, you, too, can learn to chant Torah portions on Shabbat, using the correct trope.  Beth Israel Synagogue will offer a series of classes this fall on learning the ta’amei ha-mikra (Torah cantillation marks, or trope).  No previous Torah chanting experience is presumed, but you will need to know how to read Hebrew at least basically.  It is not necessary to be able to read musical notation.  All of the tropes used in regular Shabbat Torah chanting will be covered (the course will not cover the special tropes used for holidays or the haftarah trope).  The course will also cover the function of cantillation marks as an aid to understanding the Biblical text and as a guide for stressing the correct syllable, as well as some of the common problem areas of proper Hebrew pronunciation.  Frank Goldsmith will teach the classes.  Written materials will be provided.  There is a charge, payable to Congregation Beth Israel, of $18 for CBI members and $36 for non-members.

The classes will be taught on six consecutive Sunday evenings beginning on October 22 and concluding on November 26, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the downstairs conference room at Temple Beth HaTephila. Each student will also be offered an aliyah to chant after completion of the course. Thus you will have plenty of time to practice before stepping up to the bima!

To register for the classes, please contact the synagogue office, 828-252-8660, or admin@bethisraelnc.org.  Please call by no later than Monday, October 2, so that we will have time to prepare sufficient materials for all students.

Wednesdays, noon to 1:00 pm
Published Tuesday, March 18, 2014 8:00 am

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. We will gain not only an understanding of what the Rabbis were teaching, but how and why they were able to offer these teachings. While there are many compilations of Midrash from different periods in Jewish history, we will focus our studies on Midrash Rabbah.

Friday Noon Study Group
Dec 1 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Starting on October 20 CBI’s Friday Noon Study Group will be discussing Aviya Kushner’s The Grammar of God, a National Jewish Book Award and Sami Rohr Prize finalist.  The Grammar of God, is about what the Bible loses in translation, what those who read it in Hebrew can access but those reading in other languages cannot. Profesor Kushner’s book is available on a variety of Internet web sites.

Because of the renovations going on at CBI, our group, which has been gathering for the past 18 years, will be meeting every Friday, from 12-1, in Unger Hall at Congregation Beth Ha Tephila, at 43 North Liberty Street.  When we meet on Fridays, you can park in the CBHT lot (off Broad Street; please do not use the N. Liberty Street entrance) and enter the synagogue through the parking lot entrance.  Unger Hall is downstairs in the religious school part of CBHT.  There are stairs immediately to the right of the parking lot entrance or there is an elevator near the back of the main sanctuary.

All are welcome to join us, regardless of their level of expertise.  If you have any questions, call or email Jay Jacoby (298-9433/ jbjacoby@uncc.edu).

There will be no meeting on November 24, the day after Thanksgiving.  Our group will resume on December 1, when we will be discussing Chapters 6 and 7 of The Grammar of God (“Law,” and “Song”  pp. 116-163).   We expect our discussions of The Grammar of God to conclude on either December 8 or 15.  After a short break, we’ll continue with a new subject.  If you have any suggestions, please contact Jay Jacoby (298-9433/ jbjacoby@uncc.edu).

Meet the Midrash
Wednesdays, noon to 1:00 pm
Published Tuesday, March 18, 2014 8:00 am

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. We will gain not only an understanding of what the Rabbis were teaching, but how and why they were able to offer these teachings. While there are many compilations of Midrash from different periods in Jewish history, we will focus our studies on Midrash Rabbah.

Friday Noon Study Group
Feb 2 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Starting on October 20 CBI’s Friday Noon Study Group will be discussing Aviya Kushner’s The Grammar of God, a National Jewish Book Award and Sami Rohr Prize finalist.  The Grammar of God, is about what the Bible loses in translation, what those who read it in Hebrew can access but those reading in other languages cannot. Profesor Kushner’s book is available on a variety of Internet web sites.

Because of the renovations going on at CBI, our group, which has been gathering for the past 18 years, will be meeting every Friday, from 12-1, in Unger Hall at Congregation Beth Ha Tephila, at 43 North Liberty Street.  When we meet on Fridays, you can park in the CBHT lot (off Broad Street; please do not use the N. Liberty Street entrance) and enter the synagogue through the parking lot entrance.  Unger Hall is downstairs in the religious school part of CBHT.  There are stairs immediately to the right of the parking lot entrance or there is an elevator near the back of the main sanctuary.

All are welcome to join us, regardless of their level of expertise.  If you have any questions, call or email Jay Jacoby (298-9433/ jbjacoby@uncc.edu).

There will be no meeting on November 24, the day after Thanksgiving.  Our group will resume on December 1, when we will be discussing Chapters 6 and 7 of The Grammar of God (“Law,” and “Song”  pp. 116-163).   We expect our discussions of The Grammar of God to conclude on either December 8 or 15.  After a short break, we’ll continue with a new subject.  If you have any suggestions, please contact Jay Jacoby (298-9433/ jbjacoby@uncc.edu).
