Continue and deepen your Shabbat learning experience with our Shabbat Study Series. Enjoy a nosh (lunch included) and then explore the history, meaning, and possibilities within the main framework of the Shabbat Morning Service. The theme for this year’s series is “How Ancient Law Grapples with Modern Questions”, and will be led by Rodeph Sholom clergy and congregants. Hebrew familiarity is not required; curiosity is!
Rabbi Jacqueline K. Ellenson has been leading an insightful and contemplative journey through the Book of Psalms for over five years. This treasure of biblical literature contains expressions of all human experience, searching for God’s presence, struggling with God’s absence, and reckoning with good and evil in the world; these issues remain relevant today. Through our continued study of Psalms, we will explore the depth and breadth of this literature and discover resources for our life and for our journey. This Friday lunchtime class is a perfect preparation for Shabbat as we gather for learning, poetry, and song. Seekers and learners of all levels are welcome, new and returning students alike. Each session stands alone.

We welcome all who want to learn!
