There Shall Be No Needy
Jews have long been at the forefront of social justice. Even our ancient texts taught extensively about poverty and the poor, employees/employers, the homeless, healthcare, crime and punishment, the environment, and more. Using Rabbi Jill Jacobs’s book, There Shall Be No Needy, we will explore classical and contemporary Jewish sources to these age-old problems. Taught by Rabbi Barbara Paris.
Thursdays, 10:00 AM
Have you always wanted to learn to read Hebrew? Would you like to be better able to follow along in services? Are you intrigued by the idea of an adult bar or bat mitzvah? Come and learn with Rabbi Barbara Paris. Barbara will use “Teach Yourself to Read Hebrew” which is available at amazon.com.
Thursdays, 11:00 AM
Free and open to all. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
