Adult   Learning

Saturday at 9:00 AM

Shir Tikvah was founded on Torah Study and it remains at the center of our congregational life. Every Shabbat morning, between 40 and 80 people gather to consider the parashat hashavua (the Torah reading of the week).

All are welcome! You do not need to be a member to participate.

Torah Study lasts about 75 minutes.

If you have a copy of a Humash with Torah Commentary (ideally with both Hebrew and translation), please bring it to follow along with us. We welcome a diversity of interpretations; it's great if we have a dozen different translations on hand! If you do not have a book at home, read along online here

Zoom link for members can be found on the Zoom Link page accessed through your member landing  page. Guests are welcome to email the office for information.

When our community is able to gather again in person after COVID, we will once again provide bagels and coffee at the shul! In the meantime, BYO bagel and join us from the comfort of home.
