Practical Torah


Sunday mornings, 10:00 am over a light breakfast


Q. Why did it take G‑d seven days to create the world?

Q. Why did Adam and Eve sin so soon after being created by G‑ds hand?

Q. How did Joseph know the meaning of the dreams he interpreted?

Q. What relevance do these stories have so many years after their taking place?


A. Join us for insightful and thought-provoking discussions on the weekly Torah portion. The discussions focus is on the relevance of the Torahs teaching to our modern lives.


Drawing on the wisdom of the Talmud, Kabbala, Chassidic masters and on the input from participants, the discussion is deep and poignant at times, engaging and humorous at others but always rewarding. 


This class is held at the home of Rabbi Yochanan & Bailly Friedman.
