Lunch and Learn
with Rabbi Paula Marcus

Every Thursday, 12:00 to 1:00 PM

The weekly study group will continue exploring the parshat ha’shavuah, weekly Torah portion. Hebrew not required. Join this class at any time. You can come to all or some of the classes. Free.

April 5 - May 17
Tradition teaches that during the seven weeks between Passover and Shavuot, we study the rabbinic text, Pirke Avot (The Ethics of our Ancestors). This text is devoted to Jewish morals, values and ethics. Please join us for engaged conversation about how we apply Jewish ethics in our daily lives. 

Our primary translation of the text will be Pirke Avot: A Modern Commentary on Jewish Ethics by Leonard Kravitz and Kerry M. Olitzky. Copies will be provided for those who do not purchase the text. 

This is a Lifelong Learning offering.
