The book of Pirke Avot, The Sayings of our Sages, is traditionally studied between Passover and Shavuot, this season of the year. It is a collection of aphorisms from the Talmud that conveyed the wisdom of the teachers of Rabbinic Judaism as they balanced their lives with world around them.

Recurring Study Opportunities

Shabbat Lunch 'n' Learn

Twice monthly, 12:30-2 p.m.
Many people find a deep satisfaction and joy in the quest for knowledge and the experience of engaged learning. Shabbat is a rich time to relax, share food, and come together in community to study Jewish wisdom.

Twice a month Rabbi Feldman conducts a learning session after services. Beginning this Shabbat, he will be teaching from sections of a work called Ein Yaakov. This text, a compilation of the spiritual and inspirational teachings from the Talmud, was a the subject of Sunday morning for many Sundays at BIJC. This study opportunity will allow these teachings to enhance our Shabbat experience in our community.

Check our calendar or weekly announcements for upcoming Lunch 'n' Learn sessions.
