Torah for Everyone
Are you curious about what's actually in the Torah, and whether it might be meaningful to you? While the Torah is the core of Jewish tradition, it may seem intimidating, irrelevant, boring, or even offensive.
Yet, explored from a sophisticated, ***** perspective, rather than the literal understanding or children’s Torah stories we may have experienced, the Torah can be a rich source of wisdom for grappling with today’s real-life issues: ethics, family, work, politics, money, happiness …
Join us to experience the Torah and commentaries on it in this twice-monthly class, which is led by Rabbi Bridget Wynne in an open environment. Come to one session, a few, or the series. Each session focuses on a specific portion of the Torah and relevant issues it brings up.
No prior experience or knowledge of Hebrew is required.
WHEN: We meet twice monthly on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month, 7:00-9:00pm, October-June, with some exceptions due to holidays, including in October due to Yom Kippur.
Come for one session, a few, or the entire series. See below for dates.
WHERE: We meet in Berkeley.
WHO: Newcomers of all ages and backgrounds are always welcome. You don't need to be Jewish to draw on Jewish wisdom. Please feel free to invite friends who may be interested.  
HOW: The fee for the series of 14 sessions is $350, a discount of $70 compared to the per-session fee. The $350 fee may be paid in one sum or divided into installments. To select this option, pay a deposit of $50 when you register and we will contact you to see if you prefer to pay the remainder in a lump sum or installments. 
Alternatively, you may choose those sessions that are convenient for you and pay separately for each session you attend. The fee per session is $30.
