Twice each year B’nai Israel brings top scholars of Judaica to our congregation for an entire weekend. Over the years our speakers have covered a broad range of topics including Jewish law and practice, history and culture, sociology, and the Jewish future. Weekends typically include a Friday evening lecture following a community Shabbat dinner, a Saturday sermon and presentation, and a Sunday morning program. We often include an informal Saturday evening opportunity as well. The Scholar-in-Residence program is made possible by the vision and generosity of the Dollye and I. Wolford Berman Educational Initiative Grant.
