Lunch and Learn with Rabbi Jaffe

Wednesdays: 12:00pm - 1:30pm
November 15, December 20, 2017
January 24, February 14 (canceled), March 14, April 18, and May 9, June 13, 2018

Mark your calendars and join Rabbi Jaffe for a five part lunch and learn series on contemporary engagement with Israel. Utilizing the iEngage curriculum from the Shalom Hartman institute , Rabbi Jaffe will lead a conversation around creating a new narrative regarding the significance of Israel for Jewish life. This new narrative will serve as a foundation for a new covenant between Israel and world Jewry, elevating the existing discourse from a crisis-based focus to one rooted in Jewish values and ideas. Bring your passion for Israel and conversation, along with your lunch, and join Rabbi Jaffe and other Temple Isaiah community members for this important and timely conversation.

"First Friday" Torah Study Sponsored by Temple Isaiah Brotherhood

(Classes begin at 7:30 a.m. and end before 8:30 a.m. for those who need to head to work)

Each month, Rabbi Perlman leads a Torah Study group in a lively, participative discussion. This is open to anyone who wants to drop in — women and men. We do not read the “current” portion but are working our way through the Torah. There is no preparation. The discussions usually take place on the First Friday of each month at the Temple. Sessions end before 8:30 a.m. Brotherhood provides bagels, cream cheese, and freshly brewed coffee for each session. Bring a Tanach (Hebrew Bible) or share. No RSVP needed; just come. Please contact Gil Benghiat to receive a reminder email.
