The Torah & Beyond: Lunch and Learn with Rabbi Jonathan Schnitzer

Monday, May 4th 12:30p to 1:30pAfter some coffee and “nosh,” we spend an hour together closely exploring the text of Torah. We proceed verse by verse—extracting not only the more obvious meaning of the words and ideas but also how they interface with contemporary issues and our own personal concerns. We began with Genesis and we are now in Deuteronomy, the last book of the Torah. We have 13 chapters left before we reach the end of the Torah text. But, as the “regulars” will attest, there will be at least a few digressions and discussions before we get there. Please be assured that we are not a “closed club;” on the contrary, newcomers are warmly welcomed.
