Recurring Study Opportunities

Shabbat Lunch & Learn

Twice monthly, 12:30-2 p.m.
Many people find a deep satisfaction and joy in the quest for knowledge and the experience of engaged learning. Shabbat is a rich time to relax, share food, and come together in community to study Jewish wisdom.

Twice a month following Shabbat services, we take time to study Jewish attitudes about our bodies and ourselves using a book entitled, "Jewish Choices, Jewish Voices." You are invited to participate as a part of your course to celebrate an adult B'nai Mitzvah, or purely for the joy of learning. Either way, you are welcome in this class.

The book is available for $16, and can be purchased at the BIJC office or on the first day. Check the Calendar for the next Lunch & Learn.

Rabbi Feldman is available to set up individual courses of study, including for those interested in exploring basic Judaism.
