Join Rabbi Ravski in exploring all that the Talmud has to teach us in a new weekly Talmud class.

The Prophets of Ancient Israel

with Dr. Michael Kogan, Monday at 7:30pm

The class is now studying the prophet Isaiah. It will continue its study of the prophets this autumn with Jeremiah and Ezekiel. Texts are examined from a scholarly point of view, asking when, where and why these immortal texts were written, and engaging in a close reading of the contents. With both Jewish and Christian students enrolled, interpretations of these shared texts are presented from both faiths, encouraging students to come to their own conclusions as to their ultimate meaning.

I Love Olive Oil!

with Rabbi Ravski, Tuesday, August 10 & Tuesday, October 5 at 7:00pm

This year we have partnered with MyTree in Israel, a way to support Israel, Israeli farmers, and get to indulge in some Israeli olive oil after the harvest in November. As part of this program we will also be learning about the history of olive oil in Judaism. Whether you’ve joined the MyTree project yet or not, join Rabbi Ravski as we examine the role that this precious liquid has played in our religious, cultural and culinary history!  Click here for more.
