For those who wish to engage in Torah study, we will gather from 8:45a.m. to 9:45a.m. on Shabbat mornings to look at the weekly parashah in depth. With the help of the great commentators, and (or should I say, "including") each other, we will try to mine the Torah for any gems it may contain for us. No prior knowledge is required! (In fact, it may be a hindrance, for "knowledge is the enemy of learning.") To read Torah with fresh eyes and an open mind, week after week and repeatedly year after year, and to glean something different each time, is an age-old Jewish pathway to meaning and awakening.
It has often been said, by me and others, that Torah is a map but that we are the landscape. The stories of challenge and triumph, desperation and exaltation, blessing and curse...Torah is timeless in that in can be relevant to each of us no matter who or what or where we are in life.
