Tanakh is Torah + Neviim (Prophets) + Ketuvim (Writings). The Hebrew Bible! Chevruta is a study and partnership. This study group explores Jewish spirituality by reading and discussing sacred tezts. We try to take a literary and historical view of Scripture and discern the lessons it offers to apply to contemporary life. The group decides which parts of the Tanakh to read together; last year we covered much of Deuteronomy and Numbers. Come explore the Tanakh with us; everyone has something to offer and something to learn!
