Torah-scope: Study Torah with Rabbi Chaya Gusfield in a Small Group (6-8)

Monday, April 29, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Monday, repeating until Monday, June 17, 2019

Taught by: Rabbi Chaya Gusfield

Use your birth portion as a lens into our sacred Torah text. Your birth portion is the Torah portion that was being read during the week you were born.  (Hebrew birth date) We will learn different approaches to studying Torah focusing on uncovering the personal significance of your birth portion. For example, why was I born during the week of Korach?  What can I learn about myself, Torah, and our people? Each week we will study one or two people’s portions.

Chaya is also a Spiritual Director, so often groups with her tend to take on a personal and spiritually reflective nature.  She is passionate about studying Torah as a healing practice and believes we have a lot to learn from each other.

If you are new to Torah study or have experience studying Torah, this class is for you.  Everyone should have access to a Chumash (the five books of Torah). Knowledge of Hebrew is not required.

DATES: 5 Monday evenings: April 29, May 13, 20, June 3, 17 from 7-9 p.m. at Kehilla in the Heschel Room (wheelchair accessible).

FEE: $175

Pre-registration and birth dates (time of day and year) required by Pesach.  (E-mail Chaya with your secular birth date and time and she will let you know how to send a check or use Venmo.  cgusfield@gmail.com.  No one turned away for inability to pay.)

Class limited to 8 participants. Need a minimum of 6 participants for the class to go.
