Torah and Bible Study

Shabbat morning Torah Study led by Rabbi Georgette Kennebrae

Each Saturday morning from 9-10 a.m., Rabbi Kennebrae facilitates a group exploration of the weekly Torah portion, incorporating traditional rabbinic, Hasidic, and contemporary interpretations, as well as the insights of participants. We seek to discover points of resonance between our lives and the Torah narrative, and lessons which might guide us in our daily lives and inform our efforts to repair the world. All are welcome; no prior background or knowledge required.





HaMatmid Tanakh Shabbat Afternoon Bible Study

On the first and third Shabbat afternoons of each month, West End members meet at 1:30 p.m. to explore the books of the Hebrew Bible (the Tanakh). Again, no prior background is necessary, and all are welcome.
