THE BOOK OF NUMBERS

With the Etz Hayim Humash (Bible) as our source, we will explore Sefer Bemidbar (Book of Numbers, fourth book of the bible), verse by verse. In the Book of Numbers, the Israelites complain and encounter fascinating people.

We are starting this year and see how far we go!

Classes begin on October 5th, 2018.

Shabbat Afternoons

PIRKEI AVOT

When the clocks change, and Shabbat afternoons are shorter, a committed group of ICCJ members return to synagogue an hour before Shabbat ends for mincha and then to learn together until Maariv and Havdallah.

This year we will be learning from the new Lev Shalem edition of Pirkei Avot, which was just published in 2018!

Beginning on November 10th, 2018
