Summer Beit Midrash

A Beit Midrash is a “House of Study.” Along with Beit Tefillah, House of Prayer, and Beit Kenesset, House of Meeting, it is one of the three primary functions of a synagogue - study, prayer, and social activities.
This summer, drop by the synagogue beginning at 5:30 p.m. for dinner and Torah. The dinner will be prepared by Rabbi Krishef. After dinner, grab some books from the library - Torah, commentaries, Midrash, Mishnah, Talmud, Zohar or anything that strikes your fancy - and dive in. You might come with a study partner, you might find a partner who wants to learn with you once you arrive. Rabbi Krishef will be here to help you find something to study, help you if you get stuck, or maybe even be your Hevruta (study partner) for a bit.
The Beit Midrash evenings will be on the last Mondays of the month -  June 26, July 24, and August 28. There is no charge (donations to defray the cost will be gratefully accepted), but please let us know if you are coming so we can prepare enough food. If you’d like to participate in the cooking or have any questions, contact Rabbi Krishef, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 949-2840.
