"First Friday" Torah Study Sponsored by Temple Isaiah Brotherhood

(Classes begin at 7:30 a.m. and end before 8:30 a.m. for those who need to head to work)

Each month, Rabbi Perlman leads a Torah Study group in a lively, participative discussion. This is open to anyone who wants to drop in — women and men. We do not read the “current” portion but are working our way through the Torah. There is no preparation. The discussions usually take place on the First Friday of each month at the Temple. Sessions end before 8:30 a.m. Brotherhood provides bagels, cream cheese, and freshly brewed coffee for each session. Bring a Tanach (Hebrew Bible) or share; no RSVP needed, just come. Please contact Gil Benghiat to receive a reminder email.

August 5, September 9 (2nd Friday), October 14 (2nd Friday), November 4, December 2, January 6, February 3, March 3, April 7, May 5, June 2, and July 7
