Torah Study

Blessing before the Study of Torah:

Transliteration: Baruch atah Adonai eloheynu melech ha-olam a-sher kid-shanu b’mitz-votav vitzi-vanu la-asok b-divray torah

English: Blessed are You, Eternal our God, Ruler of the Universe, who sanctifies us with Your Mitzvot and commands us to engage in the study of Torah.

Torah Study meets Saturday mornings at 9:00 AM with Rabbi Wright &/or Cantor Wittner. This is a very special learning experience, led by clergy, staff, and congregants, with the opportunity for input and thought-provoking discussion.
