“Find yourself a teacher, make for yourself a friend.” —Pirke Avot 1:6
Start your Shabbat morning with your rabbis! You'll be led through a discussion-based study of the week's portion. Be ready to engage in lively dialogue and debate as we invoke commentaries both traditional and current and seek anchors in the Torah for our modern, mobile lives. There's nothing like Shabbat morning Torah study!
