Torah Talk @ Sanctuary
Oct 21 @ 9:00 am – 10:15 am

The Torah is a vast collection of stories, commandments, ritual practices, and ethical standards. It is meant to be studied and understood not only to connect us to our ancestors and traditions, but to guide us toward an ethical and spiritual life. Torah means learning. For many of us, understanding Torah is not easy. We may find the language confusing and the meaning difficult to grasp. Yet when we learn together, we are thrilled by the insights we glean and share. Update your calendar now and join us. Participants are encouraged to voice their thoughts, insights and interpretations. Dress is casual. Previous Torah study or Hebrew fluency is not required. Questions or for more information, contact Susan Trivers, Worship Committee Chair at worship@nvhcreston.org.

Kehillat Limmud
Oct 22 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

Kehilat Limmud is designed to engage students in a learning experience that challenges critical thinking through total engagement. Students learn through the arts, experientially, using cooperative learning, project-based methodology, and inquisitive learning methods. Our program is based on the belief that students learn best in a synagogue community environment when they work together and both teach and learn from one another. Interested in enrolling your Kindergartener – 7th Grader in Kehillat Limmud? Contact the temple office or email Rabbi Wainer at rabbiwainer@nvhcreston.org

Tanakh Chevruta
Oct 22 @ 10:40 am – 12:00 pm

Tanakh is Torah + Neviim (Prophets) + Ketuvim (Writings). The Hebrew Bible! Chevruta is a study and partnership. This study group is focused on reading and discussing the Hebrew Bible, weaving in our understanding of ancient, medieval, and modern Jewish History, Tanakh, and Derech HaShem. Specific topics covered will be determined by the group as we progress. Last year we covered the Books of Judges and Kings, as well as Daniel, Esther and Job. In the coming year, we will be using The Jewish Study Bible to study and discuss Torah portions from Numbers and Deuteronomy.

Everyone has something to offer and something to learn! No experience required.
