Mondays 6:00 –7:30pm (Begins October 4)
Rabbi Shari Chen
The first book of our Torah Bereshit (Genesis) is full of stories that define us as a people. From the Creation of the world through the story of Joseph, these stories connect us to our Judaic roots, as they teach us about our relationships with God, with one another & with this world that God created, IN THE BEGINNING! We will read primary texts, from the Torah, and then not only study the biblical Hebrew used, but also the significance of the who, what, where, when, and most importantly the why behind each story. We will also explore how these stories have been used in the past and are still currently being used to guide us in Judaic ethics and practices.
Cost is $150 to audit and $750 for Rabbinic students.
