6:30 pm: Torah Talks through Rabbi Eyes


February 29, 2024

Join Rabbi Scott Hausman-Weiss (and Rev. Dr. Colin Bossen when available) for a deep dive into the Torah portion of the week.  Based on the Jewish calendar, the Torah is read and studied by “parsha” (portion) “in order of appearance.”

Through the eyes of the classical, rabbinic commentators, we will study their interpretations, and get to know and understand the tools of interpretation, utilized by Jewish commentators for centuries.

Through multiple modes of learning (lecture, diads, journaling), we will ask and answer:

1.   What is the Torah telling me/us this week?

2.   How did our ancestors understand these words and are there implications for my life and today’s world?

3.   How might I live my own life like I’m writing sacred text?
