The study group meets every Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. It is open to anyone who has an interest in the topic. Individuals with any prior background are welcome. The only prerequisites are a willingness to learn and to have a good time. Before our meetings, I will be providing materials and making them available on line. Just download the handouts and bring them with you. You do not need to read the handouts ahead of time. It would also be a good idea to bring a siddur. Any edition from any movement will do (in fact, the more the merrier – we can compare them). You can also borrow Sim Shalom from the sanctuary.
If you would like more information about the study group, please send an email to Rabbi@MishkanTorah.org .
