TORAH-TUESDAY may be our flagship weekly class, but we also have other ways and times to learn Torah and more about Judaism.
ONE-ON-ONE & SMALL GROUP LEARNING
Shabbos House offers numerous unadvertised one-on-one or small group study opportunities. Contact Rabbi Mendel and Raizy if there is something specific you’d like to study together, whether one time or on a weekly basis.
SUNDAY TALMUD CLASS
New for Fall 2014, there will be a Talmud class after the Minyan Brunch, thanks to student request and intiative. We chose Talmud Brachos chapter 4, which has 5 double-sided Talmud pages. Depending on our pace of study, we hope to conclude the chapter either by the end of the semester or end of the year, and host a special celebratory Siyum at the end.
LAW & ORDER
New for Spring 2015, “Law and Order” is a 15-minute class on the background and modern application of a specific Jewish law or observance, Halacha and Minhag. On the “early Fridays” (late Fall and early Spring) “Law and Order” is at 6pm before Kabbalat Shabbat services. The early Fall/late Spring time slot is yet to be determined. This class is also thanks to student initative and interest.
Believe it or not, you can learn a lot just by hanging around at Shabbos House. Students who come regularly for cooking and Shabbos prep on Thursday nights have great conversations about a wide range of subjects. Another great informal learning opportunity is Shabbos morning Minyan and the in-between tidbits and discussion. There’s also some quality relaxed learning at the last meal of Shabbat “Seudah Shlishit” especially on longer Shabbat afternoons in the late Spring and early Fall.
MINYANS ARE GREAT INFORMAL LEARNING
Join us for Saturday Morning Minyans. We pepper tidbits of commentary and inspiration throughout the service, and add a little spice and commentary in between the Aliyot of the Torah Reading. Not only will you learn more about prayer, but its a good time of comraderie and community and it’s amazing how much Jewish learning and custom you will pick up.
TASTE OF YESHIVA
This periodic program rotates between local Chabad Houses, and creates a 90-minute environment Beit-Medrash-style Torah study with Chavrusa (peer) learning and a short lecture/presentation, and occasionally different learning formats as well.
